We received a letter today from Edward, one of the older children at Hands with Hope Safe House. He recently went on a visit to the land in Kitale that we are purchasing to relocate the safe house and below is the content of the letter he wrote to us. Thank you each and every one of you for your support. You can see from his letter that the donations to our cause are meant to change the lives of these children:
Dear Light Up Hope,
It is with great pleasure that I send my warm greetings to you through this letter. I am very fine. This might be the first time that I am writing to you this letter but through the help you have granted us, you are not new to me.
My core aim of writing this letter is to thank you for giving us a new home. For sure, we’ve been struggling each and every day to find a new place to settle. We are children who have great potential in academics. Finding us a new place to settle has boosted us since we will have enough time to concentrate on our books. Some children had lost their hope in life but through THE LIGHT OF HOPE they are going to achieve what that had hoped for in life.
I am in form two and my brother, Joseph, is in class 8. Through your help I have seen my future brighter than the moon and the stars. I have faced many challenges in life but I have never given up. I know that life is what you make it.
Although I have nothing to give to you as a sign of showing appreciation to your help, I know that God who hears prayers will hear my prayers and bless you abundantly. he says that a hand that gives receives. I have been to the garden recently and I have seen how beautiful it is. It has a fish pond, enough water and big trees with wild birds flocking together happily. It is also situated away from the towns and industries. This is a good environment for studying.
May the creator, giver and sustainer of lives bless your combined effort, love, care and willing to share very much.
Yours friendly, Edward Mwangi DONATE today and help contribute to the funds needed to begin building the new orphan refuge out of the slums of Nairobi and onto this beautiful property.
