Just recently a couple in nyeri county announced tat they were willing to give u thei children given the tough financial times. Reports on 23rd June now show that they may not do so because once again, Kenyans watched their story and showed up.
Samuel Ndungu and his wife Mary Nyambura Mwihaki, last week shared their situation with the entire nation. Through a local TV station, the couple explained that they were willing to give their children to anyone who would raise them as their financial situation could not allow them to cater to the children.
As they shared their story and what led them to make that difficult decision any parent should ever have to make so as to ensure that they children will not starve to death, Kenyans followed keenly, a word at a time, and once again, their heroic streak kicked in.
Once their story was broadcasted, the first people to respond to their call of distress were police officers from Karatina Police Station who brought in food and other goodies that they needed.
They say that since that first heart-warming response, they have not seen an end to kindness and goodness.“I honestly have no right words to thank those that came out to support us.
We have been getting visitors and hundreds of phone calls from people willing to help. Now our children can stay with us because we have enough to feed them,” Mr. Ndung’u said.
“Politicians, neighbors, and corporates soon followed as more Kenyans continue to walk into the couple’s temporary home with aid“, Daily Nation. The spirit of Kenyans for Kenya has always been seen whenever Kenyans show up for one of their own.
You remember the story of the woman from the Coastal region who was forced to cook stones for her children. She made her children believe that she was making supper so that they would go to bed in hope of being woken up later to eat.
When that story hit Kenya news headlines, they came in large numbers to support a widow who had lost her husband to Mombasa gang and had three children to take care of them no means to provide for them. It is how kindness is expressed in our country.
