A Chinese investor has recently donated much-needed food to the Huruma Children’s home located in Ngong on the outskirts of Kenya’s capital city Nairobi.
The Chinese entrepreneur, Tai Sujun, has been donating to the Huruma Children’s Home for the past ten years as part of efforts to give back to the community, with her donation this year including a dozen bale of maize flour as well as two live goats.
“Chinese investors in Kenya are very keen to support needy children in order to uplift the lives of the children,” Tai said.
Tai, who is also the Secretary General of the China Africa Economic Trade Investment Association, said the poor should be assisted, so that they can benefit from economic success of the country.
Huruma Children’s Home Director Zipporah Kamau said Chinese entrepreneurs have been providing financial assistance for the running of the children’s home.
“The Chinese have played a big role in ensuring that the orphans receive meals on a daily basis,” Kamau said.
She said the children’s home depends entirely on well wishers to feed the children.
The 26-year-old Huruma Children Home has over 250 orphans and also takes care of another 150 children from nearby slums.
