Kenya Ports Authority  KPA has launched a food donations program aimed at helping  disadvantaged communities  in the coastal region during  this holy month of Ramadhan.

KPA managing director, Captain William Kipkemboi Ruto, said the food stuff that includes wheat flour, maize flour, sugar, rice, and  cooking oil, among other household commodities are all valued at Ksh 3 Million.

Speaking at the port premises during the flagging off  exercise, captain Ruto  said the move also is a response to the president’s ongoing call to corporate organizations to assist the less fortunate in the community particularly  in areas that were hard hit by   persistent drought.

He said the donation will be  distributed among the coastal region  counties starting Wednesday.

His sentiments were echoed  by the deputy chair of the Supreme Council of Muslims Supkem sheikh Muhdhari Kitammy, asking more philanthropists to  extend a helping hand  to the poor  and underprivileged in the country especially this time  when the cost of living has shot up.
