Well-wishers have rallied to the aid of a woman who wowed Kenyans after a photo showing breastfeeding her baby during a football fixture went viral on social media.
The picture was taken during a football tournament organized by Nyandarua Woman Representative Faith Gitau to mark International Women’s Day on March 8th.
During halftime of the match between Njambini Women and Karangatha Women, 23-year-old Winnie Wangui Kamau, a single mother, was pictured breastfeeding her daughter.
When her photo emerged online, sports commentator and media personality Carol Radull embarked on a mission to find her.
Wangui told Radull that she lives with her grandmother after the father of her child took off.
“When not training with her team 'Morvel Dadas' Winnie sells Safaricom airtime to make ends meet,” said Radull.
Radull and several other well-wishers, including officials from Rware United FC, Kabu Simon of Bonfire Adventures, and Expeditions Maasai Safaris will be visiting Wangui and her kid next week to offer them support.
Cash donations can be sent directly to Wangui through her MPesa number 0759685298.
