News Archive Christmas Appeal Launch This week our Christmas Time Appeal launched to our community of supporters. Our goal this holiday season, is to raise as much as we can for the Lewa Children’s Home and children like Salim who find a home and family there. If you have a special child in your life, you know that it takes more than just a roof over their head to help a child grow to their full potential. By reading Salim’s story, we hope you are inspired to help Lewa nurture children back from illness, abandonment, and other challenging circumstances and give them the love that they need and the opportunity at a brighter future Please support our Christmas Time Appeal today In 2007, Salim was brought to Lewa a sick and scared child, abandoned at the nearby hospital when the cost of his illness proved to be too great for his parents to bear. This sad story is all too common for impoverished communities in Kenya. During his first years at Lewa, Salim needed regular medical attention and care from Lewa’s round-the-clock caregivers. As you can imagine, the level of time, care, medicine, and education for each child that comes through their doors can cost Lewa great deal of money. Could you help them keep their doors open to children like Salim by giving to our Christmas Time Appeal today? Whatever you can spare could make a huge difference to a child’s life. Your gift of £15, for example, could feed a child like Salim for a whole month. £20 could pay for a week’s medical care for a sick baby. £120 can pay for a child’s primary education school fees for an entire year! Today, it is thanks to the compassion and generosity of supporters like you that has helped children Salim grow from a malnourished infancy, through a wary and shy childhood and into the vibrant young student he is today! Your gift can help a child grow, learn, and thrive in a way that truly breaks the cycle of poverty and gives them the tools they need to build a stable future for themselves, despite the challenges they may have faced early on in life. This holiday season, consider giving a gift that will provide life-changing support all year round!
