The Kenya Red Cross is well known for being at the forefront of disasters all over the country offering humanitarian assistance. So it was only fitting that the organisation known for offering humanitarian assistance would offer a place to rest for the weary who may come to Nairobi city.
Wednesday morning saw a new five-star 148-roomed hotel The Boma opened by President Mwai Kibaki in South C. The hotel will help the humanitarian organisation generate some more income.
The event was attended by a host of personalities in the government and corporate sector including Ministers Dan Mwanzo (Tourism), Esther Mirugi (Special Programmes). Also at the event was Vision 2030 Board Chairman James Mwangi who declared the Kenya Red Cross a Vision 2030 Flagship Project.
"The development of such a multi-million hotel complex to provide a sustainable financing stream for Kenya Red Cross provides a platform for other social development organisations to emulate," he said.
