A Kenyan family living in the state of Massachusetts, United States of America, surprised the Paxton Police Department on Thursday.

Wilson Kiriungi and his daughter Alayna donated one hundred 3M particulate respirators to the police worth Sh150,00.

But it was Alayna’s note to the police that really warmed their hearts. In a handwritten note, Alayna described the cops as “heroes” who are in the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic.

She said, “Thank you for being heroes in our community all the time, but especially now during the coronavirus pandemic. My dad and I want you guys to stay safe and healthy,

“We hope these masks come in handy and keep you safe through the pandemic. Sincerely Alayna Kiriungi,” her note read.
