Bearing in mind the hardships brought about by Covid -19, food shortage being one of them, Mwea East Sub County Police Commander John Onditi mobilised other officers to contribute money that would be used to buy foodstuff for kids in a children's home. The officer explained that they had received news that Joy Children's Home was experiencing challenges in getting food. They therefore decided to do something about it.
Onditi explained that he and other officers were aware that since the wake of the pandemic, a number of things have been affected and people have had to adjust accordingly. He advised the children to work hard, get good jobs and be succesful in life. Onditi noted that being in a children's home did not symbolise the end of life. He even stated that some police officers were brought up in the same children's home and that did not stop them from pursuing their dreams. He urged the children to follow the same path.
John Onditi has been noted to love doing charity work. Before he was transferred to Wang'uru he had partnered with a church around Nairobi's Buruburu Estate to help street kids. They had taken the children and started catering for them. Onditi reports that at the time he left for Wang'uru one of the street children was in university, some in college and others in primary school. He says that some of the children they took in at Buruburu have utilized their talents in music and have produced songs and that they are fairing on well.
Onditi concluded by telling the children at Joy Children's Home that future leaders could also rise from a children's home. He challenged them to work hard and go for leadership positions.
