Johnstone Olindi & Homeboyz’ Collins Shikoli donate to evicted families


Kenya 7s fly-half Johnstone Olindi and his Homeboyz counterpart Collins Shikoli joined hands with Susan Elliott Eastwood to contribute food to 50 families in Korogocho Slums in Nairobi.

The 50 were part of the families that were affected by the Korogocho market evictions.  Olindi says having been raised in the slums he was touched by the eviction story which was highlighted on news.

Together with Shikoli and Susan, they made contributions before they visited the families on Sunday.

“We were watching the news with my friend Shikoli and saw the way these people were evicted and we felt the pain, more so with the current status. So we made some contributions and a friend from the US called Susan came through big time,” Olindi told Scrummage.

The KCB playmaker says though they reached out to 50 families, their contributions were little. He believes with the help of well-wishers and Non-Governmental Organizations they can reach more families and contribute foodstuffs that can sustain them for long.

“I felt nice doing this because I grew up there and I know how it feels to lack food. We managed to reach 50 families with the little we had but still didn’t manage to help everyone. But we would be willing to do more of that if we got any support from any NGO or well-wishers,” he added.
