Our children at Rafiki Mwema love receiving mail and we welcome you to write to your sponsor child.
Not all of our sponsors have time to write and send letters, which is understandable. However, we don’t want some children to be over-loved with letters and parcels and others to receive nothing, so we suggest you send things that your child can share with the others… such as, stickers & books or art and craft material. Also, our boys are big fans of soccer.. Arsenal!! so they love football pictures, cards, magazines, and USBs with movies, songs and things they can enjoy.
We do ask that you don’t mention that would like to visit ‘one day’ as the children believe that means someone will visit soon and we don’t want them to be disappointed! And if you do get do get to go one day what a lovely surprise!
We recommend that you keep the package/letter small and only send plain packaging (so it doesn’t look too exciting to steal!). Also please remember that if the parcel is too big Rafiki Mwema get charged on the other end to collect the parcel (if it cannot fit in PO box) and this can often cost far more than the item is worth. We suggest no larger than an A5 size envelope like the example below.
In all cases please make sure the item is marked as having “no value” to ensure it makes it to Rafiki and puts a smile on the kids faces.
Our address is:
PO Box 4298
Kenya East Africa
As always, please contact me if you have any questions at all. Thank you for your support.
