Murang’a Women Representative Sabina Chege has donated foodstuff to more than 100 commercial sex workers in the county leaving them joyous.
” The Commercial Sex Workers through their chair Gaceri as popularly known reached out on me to support them with food citing hard times during this Covid-19. Today I honored their call and distributed food that will push each one of them for a week and I call upon religious leaders and well wishers to accord this young women support without stigmatization.” Sabina posted on her Facebook page.
According to the woman rep, they have agreed to look for long term solutions to ensure the commercial sex workers can provide for themselves and eventually quit prostitution.
“We have agreed with them that I will find a long-lasting solution that will be putting food on their table with a promise of quitting that business. They did agree to engage in businesses such as hairdressing, dressmaking and baking. I have, at the same time, encouraged them to form a group to benefit with Affirmative Action Fund through my office,” said Sabina.
