American actress Teri Hatcher has raised 35,000 dollars for children and adults who have been affected by poverty in Kenya.
The donation was presented by the Desperate Housewives star and 10-year-old daughter Emerson Rose, during their two-week trip to Nairobi.
Hatcher and her daughter visited a boarding school during the trip and the star revealed that the schoolchildren were so embarrassed to talk to her that they used her daughter as a go-between.
"They loved my daughter. We talked about math. We joked. They would say, 'What subjects do you like in school? What's your hardest subject? What do you like? What do you do? What's your favourite thing to do?'" Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"We talked about sports. We talked about who likes science - stuff like that," she added.
