TECNO Moves To The Aid Of Korogocho Floods Victims

Published

on

The TECNO Kenya team, led by IMC Manager Wilfred Odera, joined forces with local leaders Harrison Mukeka Joseph (Korogocho Area Chief) and George Odhiambo (Village Elder) to deliver essential items to affected families.

In the wake of devastating floods that have displaced over 300,000 people in Kenya, TECNO, a leading mobile technology company, has stepped up to provide essential relief to affected communities. The company has delivered much-needed food supplies, beddings, and other materials to those in need, demonstrating a commitment to immediate relief and support.

The floods, which have affected many, including a TECNO employee in Syiokimau who lost valuable property, prompted the company to take action. “This personal connection to the disaster spurred us into action, reinforcing our resolve to support not only our colleagues but also Kenyans at large,” said Wilfred Odera, the IMC Manager, TECNO Mobile-Kenya.

The response from beneficiaries has been overwhelmingly positive. One recipient expressed, “TECNO is a blessing. I had no monthly supplies of food for my family but this token has improved my livelihood and I look forward to another day.” This feedback is a testament to the impact of TECNO’s latest Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.

TECNO’s commitment to community support is not limited to this immediate relief effort. The company has announced plans to embark on additional CSR initiatives, starting with stadium renovations to promote football in Kenya. This initiative, which is set to begin in July, aims to foster local talent and encourage youth participation in sports.

This dedication to societal impact is not new for TECNO. In February, the company partnered with Dennis Oliech to promote a football training camp for under-15s, following a successful Africa Cup of Nations campaign. This initiative, held in Nairobi, Mombasa, and Nyeri, was aimed at nurturing young talent and fostering a love for the sport.

“At TECNO, we believe in the power of giving back and are committed to creating a lasting positive impact on the communities we serve,” said Mr. Odera. This commitment is evident in the company’s response to the recent floods and its plans for future CSR initiatives.

As Kenya continues to recover from the devastating floods, TECNO’s efforts serve as a beacon of hope and a reminder of the power of corporate responsibility in times of crisis.
