A mama fua with a great following on social media has been helping poor families from her community get food.
Lucy Gatimu, a resident of Uthiru estate, has previously seen how social media can help those in need as it worked for her before and did the same to help those in her community.
She shared a message on her Twitter asking those who could offer a helping hand to the less fortunate in her community by donating food and other essentials to contact her.
Gatimu explained many from her community depended on odd jobs that were not available due to the impact of COVID-19.
Many netizens came forward offering to give whatever they could get and Gatimu shared pictures of some of the items she had received and had given to those in her communities.
“Thank you to everyone who is sending me food even to those who have promised, even a packet of Unga or a kg of rice is a miracle to a certain family,” she wrote.
In just a day, Gatimu was able to collect enough food for five families that would last them two days and urged Kenyans to continue sharing with the needy.
“I am grateful for you honoring my request at least today, five families in my hood will have two days food because of your love. Continue sharing the little your have with these needy people and God will never forget this deed,” Gatimu added.Loading...
A few months back, Gatimu was dismissed by a tweep after she went on Twitter seeking help to buy new school uniforms for her two kids.
The mother of three went on Twitter on Tuesday, February 4, to thank Kenyans who had undid one nasty tweet with kindness that had overwhelmed her.
Gatimu who does laundry services to put bread on the table also noted that she had forgiven one Osama Otero who had rubbished her cry for help before hurling insults her way.
The contributions came barely hours after a local tech company came to her rescue offering to create her a website in order for her to reach her clients for laundry services.
