Scenes From The Chapati Forum

Last Saturday (18th) , I joined other volunteers at the Chapati Forum that went down at the Moi Avenue Primary School.

Chapatis were cooked in all shapes and sizes

The Chapati Forum is a charity initiative organized by some youths to feed street families. With living on the streets, most of these families  do not get a chance to enjoy good food, more so chapatis, often considered a luxurious delicacy in Kenya. During the forum, the volunteers make chapatis and stew to feed hundreds of street families and in addition to this, donate clothing, sanitary items and dried foodstuff.

Now, there was a lot of media attention during the particular day because Dennis Itumbi was celebrating his birthday and decided to join the forum’s activity for the day. Being a political figure, the occasion was bound to draw lots of attention and crowds. At some point, chaos ensued as food was being distributed to the rowdy crowds This however did not mar the high spirits that the volunteers came with. Despite the fracas and chaos that ensued as food was being distribute to the rowdy crowds, the volunteers were not about to chicken out and abandon their mission.

This Chapati Work Station was where all the fun was at :)
