Rose’s Birthday: $250 for Stereo!

Thank you all for your generous contributiRose asleepons towards the water storage tank campaign. It was remarkably quick and we received more than 50% of the approximately 1m Shillings ($500) we needed about 5 hours after the campaign started! The rest came over the next few days, and we have enough left for a special cake for that special birthday: Rose will turn one year on the fifth of December, and we would like to mark the occasion also by raising .5m Shillings (about $250) to buy a music player for the orphanage, so the children can listen to something beautiful every day, learn to dance and just relax.

Some people will remember Rose as the premature girl who spent many months in hospital, working up huge bills while there. Well, it was worth it, as she is doing much better now, living with the other Watoto Kicheko kids rather than being in isolation, eating proper food, sleeping comfortably and developing as she should, albeit slowly. Of course, the stereo is for everyone, as Rose no longer has her own private room! But we want to mark the occasion with something memorable.
