Splash happy kids

It's hot, hot, hot in Kenya  so what better way for our kids to cool down than with a trip to the beach.

And they just couldn't wait to splash about in the Indian ocean when they went down on the sands on Saturday, accompanied by teachers.

Wearing swimsuits and trunks, all kindly donated by our friends around the world, the kids were dressed for the occasion -  and our special boy David happy as a sandboy to strike a pose to show off his cool look!

After playing in the sands and having fun in the crystal clear waters, the party headed home for lunch, happy and refreshed from a lovely 
morning spent together,

Jingle bells

We are thrilled to have hit our £1000 target for our Festive Holiday Fund  which will bring together our 70 resident kids, and 60 repatriated into families, for a a weeklong holiday together at the Happy House in early December when they will enjoy a fun-packed programme of activities, special meals and a visit from Santa.
Your kindness in taking us to target in just a week  is awesome rand we are so grateful.
We will keep the appeal open so that anyone who would like to make a Christmas gift to our family can do so here - every penny will directly benefit our children.
