A former island resident who lost his wife, three children and mother-in-law in a plane crash disaster two years ago today has thanked Bermuda with a total of $446,000 in donations to island charities.

Paul Njoroge, who worked at the Bank of Butterfield, teamed up with Jumuiya Ya Afrika, a charity set up to promote African culture and heritage in Bermuda, to organise the gift of $223,000 apiece to anti-child abuse organisation Saving Children, Revealing Secrets and Family Centre.
