The Embrace women politicians' group on Thursday turned up to donate blood following the tragic Dusit terrorist attack.

The Women for Building Bridges in Kenya members were spotted at the August 7th Memorial Park lining up to join thousands of Kenyans who have been donating blood to help the victims of the attack who are still admitted in various hospitals in the city.

Those who were seen in pictures shared by the National Blood Transfusion Service include Ministry of Public Service CAS Rachael Shebesh, Murang'a Woman Rep Sabina Chege, her Homa Bay counterpart Gladys Wanga, Likoni MP Mishi Mboko and other female MPs.

The Spirit of Togetherness

On Tuesday, hospitals sent out an appeal for blood as victims of the Dusit attack were being evacuated from the complex.

Hundreds of well wishers flocked the hospitals to heed the call and by 9 pm the hospitals had begun to turn away donors after they had received enough blood for the night.

In an update on Wednesday, Inspector General Joseph Boinnet revealed that 21 people had been confirmed dead form the attack and 28 people were still admitted in hospitals receiving treatment.
