The Children of Watamu Happy House is home to orphans, abandoned and abused children in Watamu, Kenya and the surrounding areas .The Happy House is a happy home for children. When you stand outside you hear laughter and singing. When you go inside you see happy, healthy, smiling faces.
The very high number of orphans is due to Aids, Malaria and many other diseases that these people have to contend with on a day to day basis. Numerous children are abandoned. Brothers and sisters try and care for each other, some are not much older than the children they are struggling to care for. We need the Happy House, a place where very vulnerable frightened, abandoned and orphaned children can go to sleep in a bed and wake up to a breakfast. A place where they will grow to be part of a 'family' in a loving caring atmosphere.
The Happy House children thrive with caring,
supportive staff and the backing of its sponsors, volunteers and trustees.
Without it, these children would be destitute, finding scraps to eat in the
bush and sleeping rough. They would have no home, no medicines, no education,
no future and the great possibility of not surviving at all.
This project provides a vital link for so many children, who will pass through its doors over the next 99 years and beyond. Children who will hold their heads high and be proud to say ‘I was a Happy House Kid ‘
Any donations would be greatly beneficial to the Children of Watamu now and in many years to come. You can find out more about the charity at www.childrenofwatamu.net.
