COD reaches out to victims from the Post-election ViolenceMaji Mazuri Children's CentreJanuary 25th 2008

On the 25th of January 2008 members of the Chariots of Destiny through the organizations corporate social responsibility program reached out to victims affected during the postelection violence.  Over 1000 individuals lost their lives and thousands more lost property.

COD members visited internally displaced victims from the Maji Mazuri children's Center and listened to heart breaking stories of women who had lost children, all their property and had been assaulted by the same people they called their friends and neighbors.

COD members together donated food stuffs, dry material and sanitary towels to the women.

 

Power FM

As part of the ongoing road safety week Chariots of Destiny took its campaign to the Homeboyz Entertainment Group in which we were hosted by the staff and management of Power FM. We took them through the basics of road safety and COD's achievements to date.

The staff at Homeboyz showed enthusiasm and eagerness to participate further with the campaign on top of the sensitization which they had done a week earlier when Casey Marenge (COD) and Bright Oywaya (ASIRT Kenya) were aired on radio.

The Radio presenters and various personalities signed the decade of action petition and took photos to emphasize their call on affirmative action towards road safety during the global road safety forum coming up in Moscow, Russia. The staff gave a vote of thanks towards C.O.D. for their work and pledged future co-operation towards such initiatives. Becky, the program controller power FM had this to say…”We as an organization advocate for road safety as we realize that a large proportion of accidents do occur after excessive intake of intoxicating substances and the lack of adherence towards the basic road safety rules. We are therefore grateful to C.O.D. in educating our consumers to observe safe road usage.”

 

 

 

COD members took the Make Road Safe campaign to the streets and launched at uchumi ngong road.Members of the public were sensitized to sign the petitions as they received awareness wrist bands and t-shirts. The campaign was carried out at the major Uchumi supermarkets running for a period of six weeks.

The campaign was also carried out at the United States International University, Kenyatta and Daystar University. An estimated and remarkable amount of 6,000 signatures was collected. More campaigns are scheduled for the next three months around the country before the UN road safety debate scheduled in March (www.makeroadssafe.org) to read more about the campaign.
