Mövenpick Hotel and Residences Nairobi joins ‘Kilo of Kindness’ global charitable campaign for the month of September with a call to action for guests

Throughout September, Mövenpick hotels around the world aim to collect 25,000 ‘kilos of kindness’ to help people and families in need

Mövenpick Nairobi has announced the return of the ‘Kilo of Kindness’ campaign – inviting guests to donate at least one kilo of food, clothing and educational supplies throughout the month of September. The collected items will be shared with local communities in need, with a focus on underprivileged children at The Angels of Hope Children’s Home in Kibera. 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. Guests, visitors and the local community are invited to drop off at least one kilo of supplies at our lobby from September 1-30.

“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,” said Michael Flint; General Manager at Mövenpick 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.”
