Certain outskirts of Thika Town come alive when the inaugural Xmas Caravan got underway on Friday morning. More than 100 volunteers drawn from various Non Profit and profit based organizations used this event to spread the Christmas cheer to hundreds of less fortunate families and children homes within the sub county.

The caravan started at the Thika Red Cross Branch grounds, passing through Kenyatta Highway and snaking itself to Goshen, Umoja, Gacagi, Kiandutu villages and finally stopping at Community grounds in Starehe.

The incredible generosity of the people of Thika saw hundreds of foodstuffs raised to help put a smile on the faces of the less fortunate in the society. Organized by the newly established community based organization Lil Magic Foundation, whose primary work revolves around health,young,youth empowerment and community service programme they had launched a food stuff donation appeal fundraising appeal and within a matter of days nearly 50 bales of Unga had been donated.

Tony Munene patron of the charity, said: “We are completely overwhelmed by the incredible generosity everyone has shown.

“I am truly touched, the kindness of people has been brilliant. Seeing how much people value putting smiles in other peoples faces has been very touching.”
