We love visiting Muadh Girls Orphanage in Lamu -- home to 38 awesome girls. Last year, many of you donated to help us buy them mattresses, textbooks and uniforms. They were blown away by your generosity!
On our last trip, we brought along a friend who is a professional photographer. There is nothing these girls love more than taking photos, posing for photos, and hamming it up in photos. Suzanne was able to teach them a few things about photo composition, and to take some beautiful portraits.
This was right before the girls went back to their family villages for winter break. They'll return to Muadh on Jan 2, and we can't wait to see them again. We'd also love to surprise them with a few basic necessities -- and this is where we can use your help again.
We'd like to raise $760, which is $20 per girl. That money will be enough to purchase one new outfit, toiletries (soap, toothpaste, shampoo), and a round of spraying against bedbugs.
Often we take for granted that children have clean clothes and clean beds so they can focus on learning and thriving. These girls could really use such basics necessities.
So, enjoy the lovely portraits of our little beauties, and please consider helping with this New Year's surprise.
Thank you, and happy holidays to you and yours!
