Celebs spread the love on Valentine’s Day

Actress and road safety ambassador Pierra McKenna led a group of celebrities and well wishers to show their love on Valentine’s Day by visiting accident patients in hospitals in Nairobi.

With bouquets of red roses, bars of chocolate and sweetly worded cards, the troupe of love surprised more than 350 road accident patients at the Kenyatta National Hospital and National Spinal Injury Hospital.

The intention was to spread love, and the group wore red t-shirts to match.

“We had a lovely time. Started doing the rounds at about 10am till 2pm. There were those who needed hugs and we gave them hugs. Two of them had their birthdays today (Wednesday) and so we sang for them and just spent time with them. It was very nice,” Pierra told Capital Lifestyle.

Among the celebrities accompanying the M-Net Changes actress were musicians Kenzo, Avril and Mimmo.

The Generation US initiative was supported by the Kenya National Highway Authority, Resolution health, Wanadamu, Naivas Supermarket and Kenya Red Cross Society.

Meanwhile another group of celebrities that had planned a similar visit with Army Soldiers wounded in fighting in Somalia had to postpone their meeting.

Capital FM presenters Chao Tolle and Laura Walubengo, former radio host Eve D’Souza, and TV personalities Anne Kiguta and James Smart had the rounds put off because the soldiers were being visited by high profile government officials at the intended time.

The visit was being organised by army spokesman Major Emmanuel Chirchir, who gave the media personalities Valentines cards to sign for close to 15 soldiers recuperating at a Nairobi Hospital.
