Newsletter July 2012

Janet sent the container in November 2011. He didn't arrive until January 2012. Unfortunately a little late, so Janet had to stay in Kenya for a month longer to hand out all collected goods. Fortunately, Janet and her helpers were able to hand out everything in time.

First Janet visited the grandmothers. These women often have to take care of their grandchildren because their children have died.

Janet goes to another village every year to hand out clothes. This time a village under the responsibility of Paul, one of rigii's employees in Kenya.

The work does not only include bringing goods. That became painfully clear when we met a girl who was abused by her father in this village. She is now safely accommodated in a special shelter. The foundation has taken it upon itself that she can go back to school.

Another girl has taken care of the foundation. She lived with her grandmother and uncle together but didn't have a house to live. Janet had the situation checked out by the employee on the ground and the circumstances were sad. That's why this girl is the youngest daughter of the RIGII Children Foundation.

This year, the employees also visited primary school where all children who support the foundation receive education. This time beautiful computers could be distributed. Now the children of group 1t/m 8 have computer lessons.

Of the many things the foundation has received, the children could be made happy with balls and notebooks and toothbrushes and so on. It was a celebration for both the children and the teachers and the staff of the foundation.

We have another volunteer in Kenya and we come to three.
