Reddit Users Help Kenyan Orphanage Raise $70,000 After Serious Gang Attack

A brave man, Omari  who works at Fraja Orphanage in Ngong’ suburb of Nairobi has succeeded in raising over $70,000 (Ksh 5.7 Million) for the orphanage. Early this month, he was attacked and slashed many times by thugs who were trying to invade the orphanage. Omari stood his ground and defended the orphanage plus kids from the attackers, some of whom were armed with machetes. The cash came after his friends, some of who are American volunteers working at the orphanage posted his scarred images on Reddit asking for $2,000 (Ksh 164,000) to help build a wall around the orphanage.

Reddit  is a social news website, where the registered users submit content, in the form of either a link or a text “self” post. All donations were through www.longonoteducation.org website.
