We knew Kibera was on our list, but we had no idea we would be attending to kids in the HEART of Kibera.

The poverty is plain to see. It is overwhelming.

Our gifts did not fill their stomachs, or cover their feet or backs. But, the dolls and toy cars will remind them to just be kids! Their coloring books or puzzels will tug on their imaginations, hopefully allowing them to dream. The older kids get their much needed math sets. The older girls are spoilt with much needed girlie-diaries to jot down their thoughts.

Xmas Torch hopefully sparked a smile today!

Thank you for being a part of the journey.
