Hi, I’m Lou and for those supporters who read our posts, you will know that I am fairly new to Rafiki Mwema. However, I’m not new to this cause and to our Founder Sarah Rosborg, who I have known for over 20 years.
I’ve followed and supported Rafiki’s work and watched Sarah’s passion over the time I have known her. And it is images like this which make me genuinely compelled to do all I can to grow our ability to help people like these young boys – literally sleeping on the concrete, on the street, with only the clothes on their back, and no one to care for them. It truly breaks my heart 💔
I know that most of us get bombarded by requests from charities at the end of financial year, and as a single parent of three children I know the financial struggles which most of us are facing. But what I also know is that I can’t see images like this and not feel the urge to help, in whatever way I can. I already sponsor a child through Rafiki Mwema and know the real life changing impact that this has on our children at Doyle Farm.
If you have any capacity to donate to Rafiki, whether big or small, we are asking for your help. We can’t solve the huge problem that is homelessness, drug abuse, and sexual assault in Kenya, but what we CAN do is fund projects like Rafiki Mtaani and make change one person at a time. Rafiki Mtaani is the ‘friend on the street’ to boys like this, providing daily hot meals, somewhere to sleep during the day with our team watching over them, and the kindness that comes from someone listening to you and truly appreciating the situation that you are in.
Kindness goes a long way and we hear this from our street family all the time – Rafiki Mtaani makes a difference to them.
If you are able to donate, we would love you to head over to our website here to make a contribution or share this email with someone who would like to support our work. Help us to help them 🙏
