Recent donations of old school uniform were shipped by FOPHS to Kenya to support the Rain Edge/Sure 24 charity. The shipment arrived safe and sound and Sammy O. Nawali, the team leader at Rain Edge/Sure 24, contacted us to share his thanks. Sammy said;
“We the Rain Edge/ Sure 24 Family want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to you and everyone involved [the school uniform] has been received joyously.
Here in Kenya, without school uniform you are not allowed in school. You can be robbed of your basic right to education just because you come from a family that cant afford to buy you school uniform. Please know that your gift has helped a number of kids and we do not take it for granted. in Swahili we say, : ASANTE SANA (Thank you very much). The gift was received with open hands.”
We are thrilled to have heard from Sammy and hope to continue to be able to support children in receiving the education they deserve.
