Teri Hatcher and daughter visit Nairobi

The Canadian Press reports that Teri Hatcher and daughter Emerson Rose recently visited Nairobi, Kenya. Teri and Emerson raised more than $35,000 in donations and supplies from individuals and companies for AmericaShare, which primarily provides education, food and housing to children and adults affected by poverty and HIV/AIDS in Nairobi.

Teri presented a check to the organization when she arrived in Kenya.

Here's part of the article:

It was not actress Teri Hatcher who made a big impression on schoolchildren in Nairobi, Kenya. It was her 10-year-old daughter, Emerson Rose.

Hatcher and Emerson visited a boarding school where the students hit it off with the California girl.

"They loved my daughter," Hatcher, one of the stars of ABC's "Desperate Housewives," said in a phone interview from Tanzania.

The 43-year-old actress recalled a moment when a little girl in the back of a classroom raised her hand during a question-and-answer session, but "got really shy" and ran up to whisper a question in her daughter's ear.
