EABL to help in the distribution of free sanitisers to vulnerable groups countrywide; commits Sh50mn for production/FILE NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 25 – The EABL Foundation has partnered with private companies to help distribute sanitizers across the country.
The Foundation has committed Sh50 million to fund the production of 135,000 litres by two Nairobi-based industries.
EABL Foundation Trustee Eric Kiniti said: “We have engaged certified sanitizer producers to produce for us hand sanitizers for distribution to vulnerable groups and those at risk of exposure.”
“We shall be engaging our sales personnel on the ground as well as distributors to ensure the sanitizers get to the most vulnerable groups, mainly those who do not have access to water and good sanitation,” he added.
East African Breweries Limited has also been helping drive public awareness about coronavirus by printing posters for distribution to more than 40,000 outlets across Kenya.
Kiniti said the distribution specifically targets EABL staff, communities in water-scarce parts of the country as well as informal settlements and areas that have challenges accessing piped water.
