Kenyan operator Safaricom, through its M-Pesa and Safaricom Foundations, is committing KES 200 million toward providing food and nutrition to Kenyans in need. This adds to the ongoing initiative under the 'Bonga for Good' programme that enables customers to redeem Safaricom Bonga Points to pay for essential goods and donate their points to those in need as a show of goodwill during this period. To date Kenyans are redeeming an average of 20 million points a day under this initiative.
