NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- A Chinese entrepreneur on Saturday
donated foodstuffs to Huruma Children’s Home located in Ngong
area, about 30 k.m. southwest of Kenya’s Capital Nairobi, ahead
of the festive season.
Tai Sujun donated ten cakes and a bale
of wheat so that the orphaned children can join the rest of
society in enjoying the festive season.
“I want to play a role to ensure that
even the less privileged children feel that someone cares for
them,” Tai said.
Tai has been donating to the
children’s home for the past ten years as part of the efforts to
give back to local society and enhance China-Kenya
She said that the Chinese business
community is keen to lift the living standards of Kenyans by
providing employment opportunities and other support to locals.
Zipporah Kamau, director of Huruma
Children’s Home, said that orphans appreciate visitors
especially during the festive because it makes them feel loved.
Kamau said that the Chinese community
in Kenya has been ensuring that children at her institution can
meet their daily needs.
Kamau said that the home began in 1989
with seven children but now supports about 250 orphans as well
as children who live in families that are not able to care for
them from the surrounding informal settlements.
