Child of the Week ~ Birthday Child!

 Meet Shaki - Today is his birthday!
Shaki's birthday is today.  He is 15 years old and in form 1.  He scored 373 on the KCPE which is excellent!  His best subject is social studies and he wants to be an engineer someday.  He enjoys playing football.  Shaki's father was in a road accident, requiring him to be hospitalized.  His mother is unemployed.  Shaki was living with his brother who was only able to do menial jobs to earn a living.  Shaki had to walk long distances to attend school, often without food to eat.  Therefore, the WHS school director reached out and offered him a place to live at Holly's Heart on the WHS campus.  Can you help Shaki and be his sponsor and friend?

You can sponsor Shaki for only $30 a month.  Sponsorship of a child living at Holly House covers the child’s room, school fees, and three meals a day.  You will receive an annual photo and at least three letters from your sponsored child per year.

Please make a difference in the life of a child today.
