Make a difference this year, buy just one present for some of the poorest and in need families living in the Nairobi slums for whom it will make a real and lasting change.
Last year’s appeal had a genuine impact. The stories of lives changed from these donations can be found here on the website and on the Just Giving site and show how a donation can be the positive turning point in someone life.
