£840raised of £7,500 target by 20 supporters

    Weʼve raised £840 to Pay for the heart operation for a girl in a Kenyan orphanage, Lydia Wambui Kuria.

    Funded on Wednesday, 28th December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Lydia is cared for by the Jesus Helpers Children's Home in Kenya. She need a heart valve operation to restore her back to health, but funds are always tight. The children's education and general upkeep means that the only way to help Lydia is to get support from generous people who can make it happen.

    I have been giving modest support to the home since 2013, having been inspired on a couple of visits while working in Kenya. I am not religious myself but the pastor and his wife do a great job running a happy place where they look after about 45 children of all ages. They are desperate to help Lydia so she can have a future, and we can help.

    Everyone who makes a contribution can feel proud and uplifted by the simple act of saving a child.

        Things have been a bit hectic these last few weeks so apologies if I don't send you a Christmas card. This will have to do instead!
