5 months after 10-year-old Geoffrey was knocked down in a hit-and-run, we can bring you the full story of his treatment and recovery.

A sudden surge in admissions of children in crisis has stretched accommodation to the limit. We need your help to ensure vulnerable children have a safe and comfortable place to sleep. Amongst the new residents are those impacted by the economic consequences of covid-19, a girl fleeing abuse, and victims of a house fire. The sanctuary offered at Future Stars is vital at times of crisis but, without enough beds, the situation is less than ideal.

Happy Christmas! The children of Future Stars enjoyed a wonderful day of celebration with good food, music and dancing. Whilst plans were for 50 children to attend for the party, increased need within Kibera resulted in some last-minute adaptations. Much fun was definitely had by all and we have the photos and videos to prove it!
