What started as just a thought, just an idea or maybe a suggestion finally came to be real…
Most are times we take what we have or what we see for granted, we never realize how fortunate we are just to have the things we have and the opportunities around us.
“Nairobi?? I have never been there,” said the std 8 pupil, “it’s a big city with big houses and many cars.” she continued to explain how she thinks Nairobi looks like, maybe from her friends in school, or newspapers or less likely from the TV. This at first sounded so Not-true, and even somehow funny for me. But after listening to almost all the kids in the home, the story was the same. Only a little few had ever been to Nairobi and that was more than 5 years ago. Nairobi has changed and I wondered whether they would even have an idea of what the Capital city is like today.
Over the years we have visited this kids as Rotaract Club of Limuru at their small home where they only get out while going to school or to the Church. All along they have seen us come donate our gifts, spend time with them , counsel them, play with them and later on leave at the end of the day.
But this time we wanted to do something else, something they will feel is worth a Christmas Holiday. As many families set out for Christmas at the coast, some at the magnificent L.Naivasha lounges and some at the Mara and Tsavo parks, we also had a Christmas package for this Angels.
With the great help from Rotarians, Rotaractors and Friends we were able to sponsor all the 27 kids to a visit to the Nairobi National Park on the 22nd Dec. 2015. Thanks to the Limuru CDF office who gave us their bus for free to ferry the kids to and fro and with the competent jovial driver, our movement was swift and safe.
To the Rotaract Club of Limuru team that made this event successful, with special thanks to our community service director Miss.Yvette Kiratu , Our President Mr.Simon Muturi , our VP Mr.John Chui and the ever cheerful Miss.Rowzy Brown and to all Rotaractors and friends, we are so honored to have you in our #RotaractLimuruFamily.
