Gor Mahia fans under the auspices of the Gor Mahia fans foundation participated in a visit to the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) on Saturday to share love with the sick little ones. The events was organized by fans to share the champion’s feeling with the community after a sterling performance in the 2013 season of the Kenya Premier League (KPL) which saw Gor Mahia win the title after an 18 year hiatus.
The statement from the foundation read as follows : “GOR MAHIA FC fans on Saturday 23rd November 2013 visited children admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital – Paedriatric Oncology Ward. The fans donated fruits, toys, toiletries and other personal consumables to the children.
The fans also interacted with the children through special songs and dance and most importantly, we raised some money– part of which was used towards direct purchase of some of the above listed items to add on to those donated by the fans and the rest of the funds will be used in offsetting bills for the most needy residents of Ward 1E. The visit to KNH was organized as part of thanksgiving to the Almighty for having ended our 18 year KPL drought.”
The fans also attended a mass service at St. Stephen’s Catholic church – Jogoo road on Sunday as a way of appreciation and thanking God for the good season their club had.
The church dedicated a portion of their 2 hour service (9am to 11am) to offer prayers to the fans, club and the team. Gor Mahia fans also contributed money towards completion of the Church’s perimeter wall project. What a way to thank God for the season.
