The food hampers were personally distributed by the members of the HRSC and assisting volunteers to a representative of each needy family who had gathered at Kyetani Secondary School, 199 km from Nairobi. The HRSC was assisted on the ground logistics by Bishop Dr. Mutemi and Sister Magdaline who head the Church group in Mwingi area.
