On Saturday, March 10th, we received word that Melvin was feeling unwell. It was apparent that she would need to see a doctor, so arrangements were made for her to visit the hospital. Thanks to the Child Sponsorship Programme, we were able to ensure she received the treatment she needed.
On August 3rd 2017, we received the news we had dreaded – two boys displaying symptoms of cholera. The progress of Samuel and Laurence has been followed by many across our social media channels. Now, the (almost) complete story is here…
The cholera outbreak in Nairobi and Kibera 2017 is frightening. What are the facts about this deadly disease? And what does the outbreak mean for the children of Future Stars?
Today, Praxides has visited the doctor with a painful eye. Thankfully, Chaffinch has been able to cover the costs of her medical care and we hope she will be back to full health very soon.
Food, Shelter, and Education remain at the core of our work. But it doesn’t stop there. Have a look at some of the ‘little things’ that make a big difference.
Until 2016, Chaffinch hadn’t embarked on any significant structural projects. However, that was about to change! Take a look at a summary of the two major projects completed to date.
Just twelve days before Christmas, a small boy is pushed gently through the doors of Future Stars by his aunt. He looks exhausted, terrified, and soul-crushingly sad. This is Laurence, 8-years-old and fleeing for his life.
Earlier this month, Geoffrey became very ill with malaria. This is common in Kibera and can have tragic consequences. Thankfully, Chaffinch could make a real difference.
Thanks go out to everyone who supported our appeal to access medical care for Samuel. He is now doing much better and we have a happy update to share.
