10 years old Boy who Raised Thousands of Money to Fund Search for his Lost Father

Imagine your ten years old son or brother raising KShs 339k through charity. The boy who is named Keiran lost his father, who was fishing from a boat in April 2016. Keiran had high hopes that the guards and other professionals on the coast would find his father one day. His expectations dwindled after waiting for days, weeks, and months with no updates. After there was no more hope for Keiran to get his father’s body, Craig Reid, he started thinking of another suitable solution.

BBC reported that Keiran, who was seven years then was encouraged by the fact that volunteers did not give up on the search for his fisherman’s dad. Keiran decided to start searching for funds through charity to enable the experts to look for his father, Craig. Some weeks later, after his father drowned, the boy initiated the fundraising.

Since the funds drive program started, the boy has raised $3,390, which is equivalent to KSH 339,000. The charity money would be used to find the missing fisherman. Some of the qualified organizations that took part in the fathers’ search include both French and American military who used their aircraft. Trainees in Northern Scotland were also involved in search operations. Fortunately, as a result of the high hopes with Keiran, the late father’s body was recovered by a fishing boat.

Keiran resided in Avoch Black Isle, and since his father’s loss, he has been a Fundraiser who worked hard to acquire his dreams. As a result of Keiran’s efforts, he was awarded as the best Child Fundraiser for charity.
