Every year, Team RKF spends the Christmas Holidays with the children spending it at Obama Children's Hospital in Kisumu. 2019 was especially challenging due to the doctors' strike, however, like we do every year, we packed some toys, gifts, Santa hats, food and lots of cheer and made our way to the hospital.
We spent the day decorating the hospital, setting up a small Christmas tree and getting in some fancy car rides before enjoying lunch and finishing it off with some fruit and cake. This is a day that fills our heart with strength and joy as we get to interact with children who show such incredible hope and resilience. Team RKF is always inspired and we couldn't think of a better way to wrap up the year... until the next one :)
We would like to give a special shout out to the nursing staff at Obama Children's Hospital, and a local baker, Arpita Patel, for baking a lovely cake for all the children and parents who were at the hospital. This would obviously not have been possible without the incredible RKF Volunteers and Interns: Roda, Muskan, Zanela, Rodney and Chelsea. And of course you! We have such deep gratitude for the incredible support we get from both local and interantional communities for the work we do.
