Kajiado County Government has received a boost in the battle against the spread of the novel Coronavirus after a Non-Governmental Organization, Direct Aid Africa, donated 50 water tanks.
The organization’s County Coordinator Ibrahim Hassan said the donation was to compliment the county government’s effort in the fight against the virus.
Hassan noted that many public areas in the County like markets, bus stops and estates do not have adequate water points thus the tanks would ensure that all persons accessing those places have access to running water for hand washing.
He called upon residents of Kajiado to follow the Ministry of Health guidelines such as regular hand washing with soap, observing social distance and wearing of masks in public to curb the spread of the virus.
“It is important to continue observing the Ministry of Health guidelines to stop the spread of coronavirus. These tanks will ensure that all persons have access to running water which they can use to wash their hands with soap thus reduce the risk of infection,” said Hassan.
The coordinator revealed that over 200 vulnerable families in Kajiado Central had received food items to cushion them during the hard economic times brought about by the pandemic.
He further cautioned the Muslim community to adhere to the Government’s directives in the battle against Covid -19 as they observe the final days of Ramadhan and as they wait to mark Idd ul Fitr.
