At least 40,000 families are set to benefit from food donations during this Ramadan period.

The food distribution program organized by Bulk Stream Limited and the Jaffer Foundation will see 40,000 vulnerable families from across the country receive essential food items during this Ramadan season.

“We are hoping and praying that this humble gesture will go a long way to alleviate and cushion very many needy Kenyans during these tough economic times,” said Bulk Stream Deputy CEO Solomon Ondego.

“We are extending our effort of compassion and solidarity in keeping up with this holy month of Ramadan,” he added.

The month’s worth provisions that include staple food items such as wheat, maize flour, rice, beans, sugar, porridge, salt, tea leaves, dates, and cooking oil will be distributed to vulnerable families in Mombasa, Tana River, Lamu, North Eastern, Taita Taveta, parts of Nairobi and other regions.

“This not only helps to lessen the financial burden on these marginalized families but also serves as a reminder of the importance of spreading kindness and generosity, especially during this particular month,” said Yusuf Jiwa from the Jaffer Foundation.

Ondego and Jiwa urged other companies, institutions, and individuals to also do their part in giving during this period of Ramadan.
