The Dgonie hair arts brand, popularly know as Dgohnie Empire on Facebook carried out free hair cuts for the kids and delivered a host of donations from various groups. The kids also ate to their fill and participated in talent competitions that saw the winners walk away with various prizes.

And as if that’s not enough, the kids were lucky to be treated to a high fashion showcase by Velour Models, Joyworth Fashion House, Sphere Kenya, Frank Suits, Modelana Models, Desnas Dynasty models among other current and former title holders.
