December Charity in Ruiru continues its remarkable journey

As the festive season dawns upon us, the spirit of giving and compassion resonates more profoundly in Ruiru, thanks to the enduring efforts of the December Charity. This year, the charity embarks on its heartfelt mission with renewed vigor, backed by the generous support of individuals and organizations committed to making a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

The December Charity, a beacon of hope in the Ruiru community, has consistently transformed the lives of at least 100 families and hundreds of children from at least three children centers including a class of 40 autistic children. What began as a small gesture of celebrating birthdays has blossomed into a monumental movement of kindness and generosity, touching lives and uplifting spirits. This has taken place every single year in December for close to a decade now.

This year of 2023, the charity drive is notable for its collaboration with esteemed partners. Impact Africa Consulting Ltd, a renowned sustainability consulting firm in Africa, has pledged its support, bringing a wave of positive change and resources.

Additionally, Sustainability Pathways Africa, an initiative led by the visionary Lexxy Mbucho, is set to play a crucial role. They will not only contribute to the charity but also impart valuable knowledge about sustainability and climate change to the young minds at the children’s centers. This educational initiative culminates in a significant tree planting exercise, symbolizing growth, hope, and a greener future for the community.

The heart of December Charity lies in its commitment to tailor its assistance to the specific needs of the families it supports. Last year’s triumph in raising over KES 500,000 stands testament to the collective power of community and compassion. With 99% of the contributions directly benefiting those in need, the charity ensures that every donation makes a tangible difference.

The call to action this year is more emotive and urgent. The charity invites everyone to be part of this noble journey – a journey of bringing smiles, providing relief, and fostering a sense of community. Whether through monetary donations, volunteering time, or donating essentials, every contribution, big or small, creates ripples of positive change.

In an extension of their mission, the December Charity is also focusing on the holistic development of the beneficiaries. This includes not just meeting their immediate needs but also investing in their future. Educational support, particularly for the children, is an area the charity is passionate about. By organizing mentorship programs, the charity aims to break the cycle of poverty and empower the next generation.

The impact of the December Charity is evident in the gratitude and joy of its beneficiaries. Families and children, once burdened by the hardships of life, find solace and hope in the generosity of strangers turned benefactors. The initiative is more than just a charity; it is a movement that embodies the true essence of humanity – caring, sharing, and supporting each other.

As we approach December, let us rally together to support this noble cause. Let’s join hands in making this year’s event not just another charity drive, but a celebration of life, sustainability, and enduring human spirit. Your support can light up lives and pave the way for a more sustainable and hopeful future for the children and families of Ruiru. Let’s make this year’s December Charity a milestone of change and compassion.
