Food and beverage processor Capwell Industries has pledged donation worth Sh20 million of its processed maize flour brand Soko for distribution to hunger-stricken families in Kiambu County.

Chief executive Rajan Shah said another Sh2 million had been donated to Kiambu County government with further plans underway to join hands with ongoing government efforts to ease suffering among Kenyans during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Times such as these call for individuals, communities, public and private sectors to rally and support each other. As an indigenous Kenyan company, we have always been unwavering in standing with Kenyans for better or for worse, and this is one such moment,” said Mr Shah.
