Nairobi - Kenyans raised KES 17.5 million to help Garissa University College attack victims and their families, the Kenya Red Cross has announced.

KRC chairman Abbas Gullet announced Friday that the figure was the result of concerted efforts by Kenyans to help the victims of the attacks.

" The major contributors were the Safaricom Foundation, Kenya Commercial Bank and National Bank, who collectively donated KES 15 million through the Kenya Pamoja Foundation," Gullet said Friday.

The remaining KES 2.5 million was donated from other platforms including pay bill numbers and other donations.

" KES 7,465,000 catered for burial expenses while more than KES 10 million catering for psychosocial treatment and support.

" 513 students and 157 families have undergone counseling which will continue until the end of June," he added.
