Jomo Kenyatta foundation celebrated the World AIDS Day a few days earlier by visiting orphans and vulnerable children at Ruben Centre. The event with a thematic angle on “learning more about HIV/AIDS, we care do you” was aimed at sensitizing both their staff on the scourge as well as touching the lives of those affected or infected with HIV/AIDS. They spent the morning of the 29th Nov with more than 35 children and enjoyed themselves through narratives, songs and poems all with HIV/AIDS message. They also brought gifts to Ruben Centre that included dry food stuffs, maize flour and text books. They also took counsellors from Ruben Centre to their offices to do staff voluntary counselling and testing for three days. During these three days more than 65 staff were tested and advised accordingly. Jomo Kenyatta Foundation is a well renowned publisher in Kenya situated just a kilometre away from Ruben Centre. Thanks Jomo Kenyatta for your generosity.
