Menengai Refineries donate soaps to vulnerable groups

Vulnerable Groups and low income earners in Nakuru County have received bars soaps from Nakuru based company Menengai Oil Refineries Limited.

The company deals with household items such as bars soaps, cooking oil, petroleum and milking jelly. It donated 200 cartons loaded with 48 bars soaps each and the soaps will be distributed to low income and vulnerable groups within the county.

The move is aimed at helping to prevent the spread of the COVID-19  and the donations come at a time when locals are being advised to wash hands regularly to stop the spread.

Menengai Oil Refinery Head of Marketing Simpson Osiemo has challenged other companies to join hands with the Government in the fight against the virus. He stated that the virus has become a global threat which the National and County Government might not be able to fight against without support.

“Every company should endeavor to engage in partnerships that make an impact in the lives of the ordinary people in the society,” said Mr Osiemo.

Besides using sanitizers and liquid hand washes, locals were advised to make use of ordinary bar soaps which have been medically proven to kill the COVID-19 virus. Bar soaps are believed to contain chemical elements that break the protein and fat envelopes that make up the virus. The virus is then washed away from the hands by using running water.

The County Government has gone ahead to set up several hand-washing points in markets and other public areas with the county.
