Kwale school for the deaf receives new year gifts

 

Kwale International Sugar Company (KISCOL) has donated food stuffs worth Ksh270,000 to the students of the Kwale School for the Deaf as New Year gifts.

Each of the 135 pupils at the school received a 10kg bucket with assorted food stuffs, including wheat flour, maize flour, rice, sugar, cooking oil and salt.

Speaking after distributing the food stuffs, the company’s community relations officer Mathias Mutua said that the company is committed to ensure they relate well with the community around.

“This company invests here in Kwale and as our corporate social responsibility we want to ensure we reach the community first,” he said.

He said their focus has been on less privileged groups such as orphans and deaf pupils.

Mutua said that the company is ready to help the school in any way in a bid to ensure the pupils get a good education.

Kwale Deputy County Commissioner Mwangi Kahiro lauded the sugar company for extending their helping hand to the less-privileged during such seasons.

He said that the government is doing everything possible to address the land problem facing the school after a piece of its land was allegedly grabbed by a private developer.
“We have asked the alleged grabber to avail his documents so that they can be verified and know how he acquired the land,” he said.
