Soldiers from the Royal Irish Regiment have been helping to bring a smile to the faces of disadvantaged children in Africa.
The soldiers, who are in Kenya on a training exercise ahead of deployment to Afghanistan, raised money for orphans living close to their camp.
The 19 soldiers from the RIR's motor transport platoon raised 33,000 Kenyan Shillings (£250) through a voluntary payment scheme.
Soldiers were fined for misdemeanours such as not wearing seatbelts and not checking vehicles properly.
The money was then used to buy some much needed basics such as shoes, footballs and baby walkers for the children.
Corporal Sean Haren (34) from Derrygonnelly helped deliver the goods to the children's home and said the soldiers were more than happy to help.
He said: "We went over as a platoon to find out what we could do to help. We were told that the biggest problem was that the children didn't have any shoes, so we organised this scheme."
Nanyuki Children's Home houses orphans, children of single parents and youngsters whose parents are dying from HIV.
Margaret Masheti (25), home social worker, said it was a constant struggle to keep the home open and that the soldiers' help was invaluable.
She told the Belfast Telegraph: "The Army help us a lot. Their labour has helped to build our dining hall and that's very important."
Children at Nikii Primary School close to the RIR camp have benefited too from the military presence.
Soldiers from the RIR battle group constructed a kitchen for the school's special needs unit, built desks and carried out maintenance work in the classrooms.
School principal John Kagera said: " The soldiers have been a great help. They have constructed a good kitchen, provided play materials.
"All the mainstream classrooms were constructed by the British Army - from class one to class eight."
The RIR is in Kenya for Exercise Grand Prix - as part of their preparation for a deployment to Afghanistan in March.
