Giving back- Sendy’s response to COVID

A few months past, Sendy launched a new offering, Sendy Go, that allows our customers to purchase everyday household items from various stores, and have them delivered to their doorstep without any hassle. If you haven’t yet, download SendyGo on play store, sign up and make your purchase.

Let’s take a step back…

We launched SendyGo in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to help people stay home and businesses stay afloat.

Now, you’ll remember how tissue paper was being swept off shelves. If you are part of the group who live far from the CBD and Malls, then you were probably holding your breath hoping you wouldn’t run out of supplies. Moms out there, we’ve seen how you’ve been policing the use of toilet paper and snacks and we applaud you.

Our goal was to make sure that, at this time, and moving forward, our customers have consistent access to their everyday household items and comforts without much of a hassle, and this was made possible with Sendy Go.

Beyond that, you have the power to continue to show care for the people who matter to you, like Serah. Serah’s aging Mom lives in town but has not been able to do her own shopping in over 7 years. She relies on Serah to bring by her house shopping, or on the care-taker who sometimes goes to the stores for her. Bet you’re worried about how Mama Serah will pull through this, right? Well, all Serah did was order for her Mom's everyday items on SendyGo and had these delivered to her Mom.

We want to make sure that you and the people you care about pull through as painlessly as possible. We are also matching every order made through the app with a donation to a family in need. Our objective is to feed 5,000 families across Nairobi for the next few months. Each family basket is composed of maize meal, rice, beans, cooking oil, and soap enough to last a household of six for one week.
