Why do they choose to help Rafiki Mwema?
It breaks my heart to know that these gorgeous children have undergone trauma and abuse that no child should even imagine. As a mum of two young boys, I feel lucky to be able to appreciate every day how unique and special all children are. All children deserve to be loved and nurtured, and to be given the opportunity to learn, and to develop into loving, caring adults. I think it’s wonderful that Rafiki Mwema provide an opportunity for children who would otherwise not have been able to recognise their potential, and in doing so, to stop the cycle of abuse. Due to Rafiki Mwema, these children have the opportunity to play and learn in an environment where they can feel safe and loved. They are taught how to nurture others, by being nurtured themselves, and are provided an opportunity to develop into loving, caring adults who may one day be able to provide their own children with the love and support that they deserve. I chose to support Rafiki because I know the team, and I know that all of the money that we provide is used to support these amazing children.
