Ghetto Radio’s mid-morning show host, producer and fans on Saturday surprised children at Nairobi Children’s remand with a fun filled day
The team was celebrating one year since the return of Niaje Niaje on air one year ago.
The children at the correctional facility were treated to an amazing performance by gospel star Guardian angel and a football match.
For them, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity with most of them saying they have always felt forgotten because they never get such treats.
The team also got to interact with the children facility learning the many reasons why some of the are at the correctional center.
For one Sam (not his real name) he landed at the children’s remand after he was found ferrying his friends on a motorbike. Unknown to him, his friends had just committed an armed robbery and were being sought by the police.
He says he regrets that day because he was the one who got apprehended yet his so called friends managed to escape.
For three siblings, they were taken to the center after their mother went abroad and left them without any caregiver.
They ended up homeless and as a last resort, found themselves at the facility.
Niaje Niaje fans managed to put a smile on every child’s face with gifts that included new bedding, mattresses, sanitary towels, clothes, shoes and toiletries.
The children were also treated to a cake cutting session which for them was the peak of the day.
