Sonko Rescue Team has been awarded a certificate of recognition for its participation in community service.
The non-governmental organization has been applauded for its initiative in realizing the United Nation’s sustainable development goals.
Governor Mike Sonko’s service team was outstanding in alleviating poverty, providing water and medical emergencies to the needy.
Sonko shared the news of the team’s achievement in a facebook post thanking the government and non-governmental organisations for their support in his goo deeds mission.
The team has been in the frontline in doing good deeds publicly.
This year alone, they were notable when they distributed food to starving residents of Turkana County in March.
In another incident, the governor had his team deliver a wheelchair to a disabled student in Busia County who was reported to be crawling to school every day.
After the tragic death of Mariam Kighenda and Amanda Mutheu who drowned in the Indian ocean, Sonko was in place to condole with the family.
Through his rescue team, the embattled Nairobi Governor ferried the two bodies from Mombasa to their home in Makueni county and also chipped in other burial arrangments.
The organization has earlier stated that it has plans of expanding its services by spreading across Africa.
However, Sonko’s Rescue Team has also brought agony as it has been accused of minting money from innocent Nairobians.
A con group under the same name was put on the spot in 2018 for ripping off money from unsuspecting residents in the name of offering them jobs.
