On April 24, 75 guests gathered at Restaurant Östergök in Stockholm, to raise funds for The Phyllis Wambui Memorial Children’s Home and School in Kenya www.barnvanhumanitar.se We enjoyed a delicious African buffet, delighted in the casual, friendly atmosphere and were also moved by Founder Jacinta Njorge’s report on the plight of orphans in Kenya.
We could not have done any of this without the support and generosity of each and every one of you who attended the event or in any other way contributed to this worthy cause. Those of you who attended the dinner, can certainly attest to the great number of raffle prizes donated by very generous benefactors. In addition to prize donations, we received cash donations from several people who were unable to attend the dinner but who were interested in supporting our cause. Many of you purchased raffle tickets and of course, dinner guests contributed their valuable time as well.
We are happy to report that we managed surpass our original objective of 20,000 SEK and, after deducting expenses, will be able to donate a total of 28,923 SEK! to the home.
For those of you who attended the event please refer to our Photoalbum section of this web space to see a selection of photographs taken that evening.
