The first lady and Mama Sarah, who is the grandmother to former US President Barack Obama, discussed on how they would improve the livelihood of vulnerable communities.

“During their meeting, the two discussed their shared interest in improving the livelihood of vulnerable communities, especially children, and women,” part of the statement from State House read.

She used her own resources and relentlessly worked with community leaders to meet the dire needs of these orphans. Her phenomenal work was recognised beyond the boundaries of Kogelo village.

On the other hand, in 2014, the First Lady launched Beyond Zero Campaign in January to help women and children in Kenya.

“I am deeply saddened by the fact that women and children in our country die from causes that can be avoided. It doesn’t have to be this way… This is why I am launching the ‘Beyond Zero Campaign’ which will bring prenatal and postnatal medical treatment to women and children in our country,” she said in 2014.

Meanwhile, President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday awarded Mama Sarah Obama the Elder of the Order of the Burning Spear (EBS) for her dedicated service to the poor.
