Naomi - A Kenyan With a Heart of Gold

Shayne Whitaker

My page:

Naomi is a beautifully big hearted woman in Kenya with a heart for abandoned orphans. Regularly she is left with children on her doorstep which she continues to take in.  With no funding she was forced to beg from local farmers to get food for her increasingly large family.  Eventually she got to a place of absolute despair and exhaustion and was unable to cope and at a point of giving them up.  

In March 2013 we travelled out to meet her to see how we could help. The film shows the urgent need and how you can get involved.  We need to raise £70,000 in order to completely renovate the home providing water, beds, blankets, clothing, vehicle etc.   We have an opportunity to make a big difference so if you can help in anyway no matter how big or small 100% of the money you give will go to the home.

Please follow the Donate Now link on this page to make a single payment towards our £70,000 fundraising target. Alternatively if you would consider sponsoring a child for £30 per month as part of continuing support towards their future please click here.

Thanks so much for supporting a project that is close to my heart. I look forward to updating you as to the difference you have been able to make.
