Westage mall kitty receives a boost from Kenyans living in the USA

05 November 2013, 18:42 Robert Kibet

Nakuru - The Westgate disaster kitty got a major boost on Tuesday after Kenyans living in Tennessee state in the United States of America (USA) donated 1000 dollars.

Pastor Robert Kamau, through the Kenya Association of Middle Tennessee, delivered the money raised for the last two months to the Kenya Red Cross Society Nakuru branch.

While presenting the cheque to the KRCS assistant Secretary General for Rift Valley region, Patrick Nyongesa, Kamau said that despite living in the USA, Kenyans felt touched by what transpired at the Westgate mall hence their initiative to donate.

“We were touched by what happened to people drawn from various tribes and races in the Westgate siege and we proceeded to raise funds to support those who were affected by the terrorists act,” said Pastor Kamau.

He said that they were overwhelmed by the unity portrayed by Kenyans during the difficult time adding that it gave them the strength to pull resources together for a common purpose.

On behalf of the KRCS, Nyongesa thanked the association for the support, which he said, would go a long way in assisting those who were affected.

He said that so far, slightly over KES 130 million has been raised through the “we are one kitty”.
