JWS visits Ol Pejeta
For many years we have worked with Ol Pejeta Conservancy to play our part in helping to protect and nurture wildlife in Africa. We recently sent a few members of the JWS team over to Ol Pejeta for a day they’ll never forget.
The JWS team started the day by going to Powys Dispensary where they had a jiggers clean up session for the infected feet of children from surrounding Ol Pejeta communities. Over 100 children were attended to. The JWS team also raised awareness for the eradication of jiggers.
Later in the day, we went to the Weruini Community where Ol Pejeta has an Energy saving jiko (a container made of metal or clay that burns charcoal or small pieces of wood used for cooking or to give heat) project on the go. The team gained first-hand experience on how to build these jikos.
Malaria breakfast seminar
On the 23rd May, we were delighted to co-host a World Malaria Day breakfast seminar. Clients and employees of JW Seagon were invited to this popular event to hear the latest developments in Malaria from our expert speakers (Dr Mauro Saio and Dr Eric Munene) and to ensure the fight against Malaria is never forgotten. It meant time away from the office for all attendees, and that for a positive cause – so all in all it was a win-win scenario!
