Volunteers from the Royal Corps of Signals have donated clothes, toys, books and stationary they collected from friends and family to help the children at Baraka Orphanage in partnership with The HALO Foundation.
The Royal Corps of Signals (often simply known as the Royal Signals – abbreviated to R SIGNALS) is one of the combat support arms of the British Army.
Signals units are among the first into action, providing the battlefield communications and information systems essential to all operations. Colloquially referred to by some as “Siggies”, Royal Signals units provide the full telecommunications infrastructure for the Army wherever they operate in the world.
With its own engineers, logistics experts and systems operators to run radio and area networks in the field, they are responsible for installing, maintaining and operating all types of telecommunications equipment and information systems, providing command support to commanders and their headquarters, and conducting electronic warfare against enemy communications.
The Halo Foundation work to provide orphaned and abandoned children from around the world with the foundation of a family in which hope can emerge from hardship.
Also this week, a BATUK (British Army Training Unit Kenya) Commander awarded bonuses and awards to Locally Employed Contractors (LECs) who had gone above and beyond in their work for the unit.
BATUK employs over 500 locals who are a valued and critical part of the team delivering output in Kenya.
