“Donors continue to play a vital role in transforming Nairobi’s landscape, particularly in critical areas like healthcare, infrastructure, slum improvement, and food security. Their contributions not only alleviate immediate needs but also lay the groundwork for long-term sustainability and prosperity. ”
