After successfully rescuing two other children from a burning house, a six-year-old boy is receiving admiration from all around.

When a fire broke out in their Machakos house while their mother was gone, Richard Kitonga valiantly rescued his two nieces, ages four and two.

His neighbors were moved by his conciseness and joined together to help the family restore a portion of the fire-damaged home.

Timothy Kilonzo, a member of the committee in charge of collecting donations, observed that the team has received Ksh350,000 since the home burned down a week ago and is still striving to make up the Ksh700,000 shortfall.
