Kenya’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Manoah Esipisu’s wife Waithiegeni Kanguru-Esipisu, has organized a “Kenyan Cuppa” funds for the suffering children back in Kenya. 

Waithegeni’s online campaign dubbed “humble cuppa” will use tea as its vital driver as it is considered as a sign of hospitality across the Kenyan homesteads. 

In this campaign, well-wishers are not to offer a cup of tea to the needy but to make their monetary donations via the online platform. 

“Tea is the fabric on which warm Kenyan hospitality is woven and is cherished across all cultures,” read her statement in https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/.

The campaign targets to raise £500, of which half of the amount has been raised as per Saturday’s, April 25, 2020, publishing. 

Nyumbani UK started its operation in 1992 under the leadership of Angelo D’Agostino and has been helping orphans and children living with HIV to attain education.

In Kenya, the non-profit organization started the Nyumbani Village project to help orphans and students living with HIV attain education. 

The program has managed to see over 8,500 HIV positive children attain education under the Lea Toto program established in 1998.
