Flowers to UK

President Uhuru Kenyatta sends a message of courage and a bouquet to the United Kingdom medical workers. The President said Kenya needs a close Western ally in the fight against the naval virus. 

Kenya sends bouquets of flowers to cheer up the sick, old and health workers in the UK, the flowers were inscribed with President Uhuru's message.

Just a day after UK doctors said they are in final stages in testing the COVID-19 vaccine in their country then take it to Kenya for more trials. However, President Uhuru Kenyatta declined the move saying the state has not engaged in anything involving vaccine trials.

Kenya takes over 300 bouquets of flowers to London, United Kingdom to show empathy amid the coronavirus pandemic that has left more than 20,000 dead in the European country. 

Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), through its member, Kenya Flower Council, and other flower growers flagged off over 300 bouquets, which will be received by Flamingo Limited, UK and will be distributed to doctors and nurses on the frontline of combating COVID-19, recovering patients and care homes.

KEPSA’s Chief Executive Officer Carol Karuga said that “Our member, the Kenya Flower Council, has done this to show empathy and this sends a strong message of partnership at a time when many countries are facing difficulty. It is part of our campaign dubbed ‘Flowers of Hope’ informed by the realities brought forth by how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting world economies.”

The campaign kicked off a month ago by KEPSA members, Kenya Flower Council (KFC), Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM), Elgon Kenya, Kenya Airways and Jambo Jet and partners of KEPSA as a uniting symbol to show solidarity and compassion emerging in Kenya and indeed the world as a response to the COVID-19.

After a successful distribution in Kenya’s main hospitals in Nairobi and the counties, UK distribution is the first international distribution, an important symbol as London is Kenya’s traditional market for flowers.

“The campaign is a show of gratitude and support to the people at the frontline of or suffering from the pandemic, which will also help in saving thousands of farm jobs in Kenya’s flower farms,” added Karuga
