Janet Mbugua & Margaret Kenyatta Team Up for New Initiative

  • First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and media personality Janet Mbugua on Thursday evening, December 5, attended the first Nairobi dinner organised by Save the Children at Africa Legal Network House in Westlands, Nairobi County.

    Janet was the host at the fundraising dinner in support of the initiative to end malnutrition and premature births in the country, while Ms Kenyatta graced the occasion.

    Speaking during the event, the first lady expressed confidence that with closer partnerships among stakeholders, it was possible to eliminate hunger and malnutrition that puts mothers at high risk of premature births and caused stunted growth in children.

    “Working together, I am confident that this goal is possible in our lifetime,” the first lady stated.

    She added that good nutrition helped in preventing chronic diseases among infants, young children, adults and the elderly.

    “Nutrition is recognised as a key determinant of health and wellbeing. Therefore, we must place the nutrition agenda high on our list of priorities,” she continued.

    Ms Kenyatta commended the nonprofit organisation for its role in complementing the government’s efforts in improving the lives of children and mothers.

    On her part, the media personality expressed her gratitude at having played a part as the host in the event.

    "If ever there was a time to rally behind a social mission and each play our part, that time is now. Save The Children, reach the children left furthest behind; from marginalized communities to refugee camps," Janet urged.
