On the 15th January at around 3pm local time there was an armed attack on the Dusit Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya.

At this time we can confirm that all our staff members are safe and accounted for. However, we are deeply saddened to hear that a number of colleagues have lost friends. Our thoughts are with them all at this difficult time.

There has been a public appeal to donate blood at local hospitals in Nairobi, we would encourage our employees and friends to do so where possible.
