Visitor from UK and school visit in UK!

We were delighted to welcome visitors from England who are in Watamu for holiday.
Friends Lucy Caistor and Susie Laybourn were taken on a tour of both Happy House home and school, met our children and were delighted with our work.
They very kindly brought essetials including nappies, sanitary pads, toothpaste & brushes, toiletries, clothes, coloured pencils and books which will be of great use to our family.
Thank you to Lucy and Susie for taking time to come to see us and for all your gifts.

Blackpool school talk

Back in the UK, Elizabeth Gomm has been back to Blackpool's Devonshire Primary Academy for a special Happy House assembly.
She showed the children a short video and then told them the story, with pictures, of their sponsor friend Brian.
The school has sponsored Brian since he came to Happy House as a tiny baby and he has a very important place in the school family.
Elizabeth took along some traditional Kenya kanga wraps, belts and jewellery,some carvings including Masai warrior Musyoka, who is staying in school for their Happy house fundraising week.
Thanks to everyone at Devonshire for all your love and support, we hope your fundraising week is lots of fun!
