The collected items will be shared with local communities in need, with a focus on underprivileged children.
The hotel joins more than 45 Mövenpick hotels across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East who are similarly collecting items, with a global goal to gather some 25,000 kilos of donations.
“Mövenpick believes that sustainability isn’t only about the environment – it is about caring for our employees, our neighbours, and our community here in Nairobi. Last year our efforts were focused on supporting people through the pandemic crisis and we are now pleased to be able to return to our annual ‘Kilo of Kindness’ campaign which provides food, clothing and educational supplies to those in need – especially young people who deserve our attention and care,” said Michael Flint, General Manager at Mövenpick Nairobi.
While guests and local neighbours are invited to donate a ‘Kilo of Kindness’, all contributions are welcome and gratefully received.
The hotel chain seeks to collect learning materials, food items and clothing.
