Amid the current COVID-19 health crisis, Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi has provided dry food relief to 7,271 vulnerable families across informal settlements in his constituency.
“We are trying to help my constituents, most of whom are staying at home without work.Most of them depend on daily wages, without which they are finding it difficult to put food on the table to feed their families,” said Mr Wanyonyi.
Since the cessation of movement and partial lockdown in Nairobi nearly a month ago, Hon Wanyonyi has distributed food ratios to Kangemi, Mwimuto, Dam Village, Kibagare, Deep Sea, Githogoro, NITD, Kijiji Maasai and Gachie informal settlements.
The legislator has partnered with various organizations such as Rajasthan Rajsput Associations, Kenbarti Kenya and Premium Temple.
He has called upon other like minded organizations, corporates, religious institutions and individuals to extend their charitable efforts in the constituency.
The MP has set up a structured door to door continuous food distribution programme to benefit vulnerable families through a group of dedicated volunteers at the grassroots.

Lake Victoria levels breaks 50-year record
The waters of Lake Victoria have risen to 13.43m, an all-time record.
The highest mark previously recorded was 13.41m, in May 1964.
The freshwater lake is shared by Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, where the rising waters have caused destruction and displacement, leaving thousands of people homeless in recent weeks.
Sam Cheptoris, Uganda’s minister for water and environment, says the state electricity generation firm is now releasing 2,400 cubic meters of water per second at the River Nile in Jinja, to save the hydro-power dams from being washed away.
Uganda relies almost entirely on dams along the River Nile for its electricity needs.
Last month, the swelling waters led a floating island, estimated to have been about two acres, to break off the river bank, blocking the intake gates of one of the dams and causing a brief nationwide power cut.
The Nile flows into Lake Kyoga, north of the capital Kampala, where the water being spilled downstream has also caused the lake to swell, displacing families and damaging farms.
East Africa is currently experiencing heavier than usual rains, which are predicted to continue throughout May
