Kenya: Happy - Christmas for 65 Orphans

A city-based taxi company has put a smile on the faces of 65 orphaned children at 208 Children's Home in Ruiru. Harmonie Cabs CEO Harrison Mugwe and his wife Juliet and their employees donated food, clothings and beddings as part of his annual Xmas cheer.

The children lost their parents in the 2007 post-election violence. Harrison, the chairman of the home, said that since the orphanage was established, it has seen some of the children complete primary education and join leading national schools among them Mang'u High School in Thika.

"This home has no sponsor. We rely on well-wishers to help us feed these children. Sometimes they go hungry and we appeal to the public to have a culture of giving especially during this time of Christmas." said Harrison.
