A fundraiser organised through the British Army stationed in Kenya has provided vital funding for Nanyuki orphans.

Lance Corporal Anita Gurung successfully coordinated the fundraising event by the Queens Ghurkha Signals and British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) Nepalese family members to support the CEDC (Centre for Exceptionally Deprived Children) in Nanyuki.

A total of Ksh 54,500 (just over £400) was raised through the sale of delicious Nepalese momos (dumplings).

The money raised will be used to fund educational fees for the vulnerable children, many of whom have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS and may have the disease themselves.
