That was a great start for the new school year at Siloam , the children are most appreciative and this shows that just a small donation can go a long way in assisting the orphanage.

In December we organised a visit for the children to the AFEW Giraffe Centre in Langata. Here they came face to face with Rothchilds giraffe living in the sanctuary as well as being able to feed them.

The Centre presented their educational program for school children explaining the necessity to preserve Kenya’s wildlife, and after a light lunch the children went home with their heads full of new ideas. Thanks for the assistance offered by AFEW.

Generous donations arriving from Australia. Retired school teacher but keen gardener Bruce Wilson & his wife Dianne, are very kindly donating funds generated from the sale of vegetables grown in their home garden. In the past they have also sent various goodies to the children.

This months donation of $200 has gone towards the examination fees for 28 children doing their primary school exams and  4 boys from the secondary classes.
