Fund raising events

‘Cry for Help’ fund-raising event a great success!


Rotary 001 Following some great teamwork by SIRC club members and staff from our two main event sponsors, Gooh and Hotel Hellsten over a period of 3 weeks, the well-attended event took place as planned on Friday 15th February.

As of today (22nd Feb. 2008) the total amount raised through direct and indirect donations received is 16910 SEK.

     This means that together with funds SIRC has collected for the home through earlier events and a donation of 5000 SEK from The Riga Rotary International Club we have a current total of 48260 SEK available to help The Phyllis Wambui Memorial Children’s Home meet the extra cost they have incurred as a result of taking in children that have become uprooted and homeless due to the recent troubles in the Nakuru area.
