It’s hard to believe it is already the holiday season. The year in Embu, Kenya has been busy with 20 kids under sponsorship and the birth of Joseph and Dorris’ baby girl, Alison. The kids are spread out across the region attending various schools and colleges, but will be home at the end of their school year in time to celebrate Christmas. Faith and family are the center of Christmas in Kenya with most familes returning to their homes “upcountry”. Some of our kids will be reuniting with family during this special time, but many will remain with Joseph and Dorris to celebrate.
While Kenyans have little focus on extravagant gift giving, the holidays are a time that Moja Foundation has been fortunate to provide holidays meals and basic essentials to our sponsored children and the community at large. If you are considering any charitable contributions to your Christmas list, take a look below to see how far your donation can go to provide some very deserving kids with gifts they truly need and the joy of knowing they are loved.
