In February, 11 supporters flew out to embark on this year’s working party. The objective was to visit some of the projects, engage with the children and support a couple of capital projects being undertaken at Limuru and Meru. And if there was time to spare, maybe fit in a safari to Masaai Mara (all at participants own expense) for a few days!
In Limuru, some new classrooms were to be built, replacing the existing dilapidated ones. Good progress was made while we were there and the classrooms are now in use – a great benefit to the project. Then, on to Meru, crossing the equator on route, where an office/storeroom was being built for Mercy, our social worker there; we also did some painting and decorating and much needed rewiring work in our building there, so jobs well done! Most of the work is carried out by local tradesmen but we provide funding, give support, help where we can, and engage with the children as much as possible – also we have fun! The next working party is due in 2021; do get in touch if you think you’d like to be part of it.
