Kenyans are generally known to be charitable people.
Last year, Charities Aid Foundation(CAF) ranked Kenya 11th most generous country globally, and the top in Africa.
This generosity has been evident during emergencies where Kenyans have shown solidarity with survivors of natural disasters by donating blood, food, money, clothing and even their time. Kenyans have also contributed money to fellow financially unstable Kenyans who were in need of money for rent, medical care and school fees for their children.
Below is an example:
