The Community Engagement Team from the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) recently delivered boxes of toddler and infant clothes to Neema House Infant Rescue Center. This initiave was made possible through a generous donation from Carolyn Kirk.

Accompanying the team were volunteers and dependants from BATUK for whom the highlight of the visit was spending time with the babies and helping with feeding them.

Later last month, the Community Engagement Team attended a fundraising event at Nanyuki Garrison Primary School to donate books worth Ksh130,000 to the school. Commenting on the event, BATUK said: “It was a good example of how great things can happen when people come together.”

Meanwhile, another BATUK team initiative, Supporting Little Feet, has visited Covenant School in Nanyuki, the first time they have visited the Umande area, to give 40 children a pair of well-fitting shoes. 

More donations, this time of a plethora of football strips, balls and boots, were delivered by WO2 Cammie MacDougall and others from BATUK to Pentecostal Evangelic Fellowship of Africa (PEFA) school in Archers.

This is a community run school and an orphanage in Nairobi with the donations coming from various areas of Great Britain. According to BATUK, these were “well received and enable relationships to be formed with all communities”.
