Molu award is given to a person who has overcome insurmountable challenges while volunteering with Kenya Red Cross. The individual is also required to have shown great devotion consistently.

Speaking to Marcus earlier today he says “God has really seen me through. I have been to some life threatening and traumatic missions and he has kept me alive. Many thanks to my friends, family, and colleagues for the support they have given me. Together with other members of the society we founded Red Cross in Taita Taveta County and I feel honored for being awarded the highest award in Kenya Red Cross for my service in the past 10 years.”
