Over $10k raised as death of 21 year old college student shocks Kenyan community in the Diaspora



It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing away of Rio Kariuki at the age of 19 at his home in London.

Rio was a caring and loving son and brother who will be missed heavily by many he is the son of Lucy Wanjiku Kariuki of Barnet, London, United Kingdom, he was the younger sibling to Peter Kariuki, Brian Kariuki, Claudia Kariuki and O’Neil Rwehumbiza.

We are making arrangements to take Rio’s body home to Kenya where he will be laid next to his grandparents, at Riverside Farm, Plot 214 Muruaki Scheme on 21st January 2022.

Rio’s family would like to send him to Kenya to have his funeral there as many of his family members and relatives reside there. The repatriation of a body to Kenya from the UK costs upwards of £4000.
Although, none of us can ease their pain, we can come together and help support this beautiful family and give Rio a send off that he truly deserves. The last thing we would like the Kariuki family to be thinking about is how to pay for the repatriation and also fund a service to honour the life of their loved one.
The donations from this fundraiser will be passed on to Rio’s mother, who we admire greatly for staying strong and providing support to all the people around her.

Further announcements will be made regarding the church service in the UK in due course.

We appreciate your prayers, well wishes and support during this difficult season for the family, A golden heart stopped beating, A laughing smile at rest, It broke our hearts to see you go, God only takes the best.
We love you Rio forever and always.
