On our visit to the Ruben Centre, located in the Mukuru community, we donated 50 pairs of Modibodi underwear to the health clinic staff who were so pleased to be able to distribute these to women accessing the health clinic for maternity care.
On the day of the Edmund Rice Camp for marginalised youth, the young girls were so excited at the end of the day to be able to choose some brand-new underwear to take home – the chatter was a joy to hear! Then the camp volunteers, camp leaders and cooks were also delighted to be given the opportunity to choose some for themselves and their friends. They were so grateful!
Finally, visiting Women for Women on the final day, Sr Leonida and a wonderful group of women at the centre, were ecstatic to take delivery of over 1400 pairs of underwear to be given directly to the women and girls of the Kibera community. They were so very humbled and grateful to the Eddies community and personally asked us to pass on their deepest gratitude and prayers to all those who donated. It was such an honour to be a part of this wonderful moment and to meet such beautiful people in these organisations, making a difference in the world. In total, we took over 1700 pairs of undies and the impact this donation had on those we presented them to, will forever be in our memories. Thank you.
