Proceeds from this charity event go to Anidan, an NGO that cares for the needs of young children on the impoverished island of Lamu on Kenya’s northern coast. The Anidan Shelter houses some 100 children, but feeds, dresses, cares for and educates over 200. It also collaborates in the running of a paediatric hospital and plans to distribute 15,000 child health cards for free medical attention.
