The Co-operative Bank of Kenya has answered the cry of children at a rehabilitation center in Ngong.

The bank has donated a 16-seater brand new van worth Sh. 5 million to the children who live at the Imani Rehabilitation Center.

The brand new van will now facilitate the transportation of sick children at the rehabilitation center to hospital.

“Co-op Bank has donated Sh 5 million, 16-seater van to Imani Rehabilitation Center to facilitate the transportation of sick children to and from Ngong town to Kenyatta National hospital,” the bank said in a statement to Bizna Kenya.

According to the statement by the bank, the rehabilitation center supports abandoned children from across the country.

“Previous to this donation, the children were using public means which were a challenge because of their special needs,” the bank said.

The new van was handed over to the rehabilitation center by the Co-op Bank Head of Marketing and Communication Ngumo Kahiga.

Imani Rehabilitation is a non-profit making organization that is registered under the Ministry of Home Affairs as charitable children institutions.

The centre’s objectives are to provide care and protection, rehabilitate, educate, provide primary health care and to reintegrate the orphans and vulnerable children in the community.

It began in 1992 and has grown from a home of 20 children to an institution catering for an average of 300 children who are managed in Imani 6 homes.

“At Imani, children are rescued almost on a daily basis. On the streets, dustbins, sewage sites innocent souls are left on their own. In hospitals, mothers abandon especially young mothers. Police desks are equally busy with children found lost or left on their own without care or protection,” states Imani.

“All these children of 5 years and below are brought to Imani children’s home for care and protection.”
