The annual Fashion High Tea event is usually hosted to support various charitable causes.

Thousands of Kenyan women, especially those in the rural areas, will die this year due to pregnancy related complications: “Thousands of children will be forced to survive without their mothers — the majority will not make it beyond their first birthday.
