Kiambu-born philanthropist Njeri Muthaka plans to feed 30 families every day for 30 days from October 1 to 30 in what is her birthday month.

This is through her 'Njeri's Kabati' initiative, which helps vulnerable persons in the society, especially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Njeri will be visiting different places every day, giving food, clothes and basic needs to individuals and families.

"Needy and vulnerable families and persons have been identified by the initiative and others have referred to us that we are going to give food so they can cope with harsh times," Njeri said.

She hopes the initiative will raise over Sh10 million to support the idea.

"The initiative started giving foodstuffs to families in March and the support we are getting from well-wishers is overwhelming and has been able to sustain the initiative," Njeri said.

Some of the places and people Njeri's Kabati wish to visit are Langata women's prison, Mathare slum, Soweto slum, cancer patients, the elderly, disabled, street families and children's homes.

Njeri has since called upon people of goodwill to support the initiative and put a smile on a family by giving out donations of clothes, shoes, beddings, basic items like tissue papers, sanitary towels, toothpaste, soap and diapers.

Also welcome are dry food items like beans, cow peas, rice, lentils, cooking oil, sugar, milk, toys books and cash donations.
