Good Samaritan Donates Clothes, Household Commodities To Needy Families
Over 60 families from Manyatta estate in Kisumu County received a surprise donation of clothes and other household commodities from a good Samaritan.
Founder of Dawn of Hope Ian Mustapha made a surprise visit to the vulnerable families residing within Manyatta with two sacks full of clothes, sack of shoes, bar of soaps and sugar.
The residents join the statistics of the tens of needy families that have benefited from the clothing initiative run by Mustapha.
Speaking to Ghetto Radio, Mustapha said that he started the initiative way back in March, 2020 to cushion the vulnerable from the effects of Covid-19.
“I started this initiative back early last year because I saw a big gap in our society. Many people lost their jobs, some families and now most have to refocus on their needs and clothing has become a secondary basic need to the vulnerable,” said Mustapha.
“Today I have distributed clothes and shoes to over 60 households, each got 1kg of sugar and a bar of soap too,” he added.
Mustapha is also a human rights defender, who has fought and rescued many Kisumu residents.
For mama Dorcas Auma, clothing has become a secondary need for the period that Covid -19 pandemic has ravaged the economy .All she cares for now is at least one meal per day for her seven children .
“I can’t remember when I last bought clothes for myself, leave alone for my children. The biggest mission now is to put a food on the table. Today we have received a surprise donation, all I have is to say is thank you,” said Auma.
Those present appreciated saying they were too not planning to buy clothes any soon.
They also said that, that was a blessing and prayed that other people who faces the same situations as theirs to also receive some assistance.
Paul Odhiambo on the other side added that at he will be able to drink tea which he have missed for long.
“I appreciate, at least my wife will be in a position to prepare tea, I also got clothes, shoes and soap thank you Ian,” Odhiambo stated.
Mustapha says that slums are the most affected group with Covid-19 where at some times got overwhelmed from people who request for clothes. He always has to prioritize on the most needy cases.
Mustapha concluded by saying that it is possible to help the needy in the society and urged Kisumu residents and beyond to be more compassionate adding that supporting the less fortunate in the society requires good heart, spirit of care and philanthropy not being wealthy.
He called upon those who have old clothes or any other donations to join him and in the process by reaching him on 0713426480.
