|Flashback to 2012|
Parcels full of lovely items for our children have started arriving at the Happy House and are being spirited away to Santa's storeroom ready for the big day.
Mama is so delighted, our Santa has such a job on his hands finding gifts for 78 children that he needs all the help he can get!
Top of his wish list are books - we have so many avid readers that we can never have enough, fact or fiction, plus dvds, pc games and new summer-weight clothing, bags for our girls etc.
Books, dvds and pc games are great because both the child who receives one as a gift and their brothers and sisters all get to enjoy them.
Christmas is such a magical time and it is by making wonderful memories at times like these that we can help to erase some of the traumas our children have suffered in the past.
|2012: Bags of love|
But, like last year, we are sorry it won't be possible to acknowledge every individual parcel, but for birthdays and individual letters etc to sponsor children you will always get a reply..
You know how much we appreciate your friendship, your love and your kindness.
If you would like to help Santa deliver a sackful of smiles to our children please send your parcel to Sue Hayward's Happy House, PO Box 796, Watamu, Kenya, East Africa.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
