ABC Bank in charity visit to Twaweza Pamoja Children’s Home

July 22nd, 2017: Children at the Twaweza Pamoja Children’s Home in Kayole have benefited from a donation of various food and toiletry items from ABC Bank staff who visited them over the weekend.

The group of staff led by the Head of Diaspora Banking Joseph Waithaka spent the weekend with the children who are drawn mostly from the sprawling low-income Kayole residential area. Some are orphans while others are neglected or vulnerable children whose parents or guardians are unable to fend for them.
