Early this month, schools throughout Kenya closed for second semester school holidays. School holidays are always eagerly awaited by all students especially those residing in boarding schools. Most children look forward to seeing and catching up with their family members and relatives. However, some who may not be fortunate enough to have such families throng to places that provide shelter and love them. One such a place is the Good Samaritan Children Home located in Mathare slums, Nairobi. Mercy Thuo, the founder and owner of the home looks forward to receiving “her children” as any parent would. She goes out of her way to make sure all children are loved and have access at least, to the very basic human needs (i.e. food, shelter, and clothing) once they are “home”.
One thing the children residing at the Good Samaritan Children Home keep talking about is how thankful they are to all those who helped buy them school uniform and shoes. They feel wonderful and presentable in their mandatory school attire, including shoes. The availability of these educational requirements has been made possible by generous donations made so far. To all who have made such contributions, the children wish to say, THANK YOU!
Fabulous African Fabrics Organization looks forward to your support this October during GlobalGiving Bonus Day. It is important to note that The Good Samaritan Children Home continually receives children with various life and educational needs. Sacrificing our little comfort to support such children makes a huge difference. So, let’s make it happen!
