As exams are taking place this week for the older kids, they have been helping with the little ones in the kindergarten.
Mama was thrilled with all the gifts they brought, and also with the £1000 raised by Andrea's Happy House At Home fundraising event.
Andrea had asked Mama if the money could be used to do the Happy House family shopping and she, Ellena and Alex, had the interesting experience of going out on the shop with driver Noah and Papa Dave yesterday.Andrea said
Many households do a weekly or big shop, the Happy House is no different. Ellena, Alex and I, joined Noah on his weekly trip into Timboni. There are 66 Happy House kids plus 239 school children to feed. Papa Dave ensures he pays a fair price and as such, gets value for money. This supports the local economy too. My aim before I left England, was to raise enough money to cover this weekly shopping – around 450 pounds. With kind and generous donations from family and friends, I raised just over 1000 pound- enough for two weeks.
The items we collected this morning cost 43,000 Kenyan shillings – 323 pounds.Meat, fruit and vegetables and charcoal for cooking is due for delivery later
