KDF's Headquarters Compensation and Welfare (C&W) branch, in collaboration with the Military Wives Association of Kenya (MWAK) on October 10, 2022, marked World Mental Health Day by visiting Military Personnel admitted at the Wellness Centre in Lang'ata Barracks, Nairobi.

In line with this year's theme: 'Make mental health and well-being for all a global priority,' Chief of Compensation & Welfare Brigadier John Khaoya, with other KDF officers accompanied by MWAK members led by the Chairperson Mrs. Tabitha Kibochi, visited military personnel experiencing mental health issues at the facility.

Addressing the patients, Brigadier Khaoya urged them not to lose hope in life, assuring them of support and love from the military fraternity. He also pointed out that the will and power to get better starts with them as individuals.
On the same platform, MWAK Chairlady Mrs. Kibochi urged the male personnel to take charge of their lives as heads of their families for their families' stability. "Find purpose in your life to be honourable men in society," she added.
