Mama Kerry and Uncle Patrick xx
10 days ago Footprints was unexpectedly blessed with our 36 child Nicholas he was abandoned by the roadside only a few days old. We were completely overwhelmed by the response to helps us buy the vital supplies of powdered milk. Today we collected a suitcase full of supplies sent over by our friends of British Airways. Your donations will support Nicholas over the next few months already his skin has improved and he is alert and gaining weight. Tomorrow we will take him to the Magistrates Court to get a formal Committal Order for him to continue to live with our Footprints family 👣 as the police continue to search for his mum !
Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness at this time of year.
On behalf of Footprints Patrick our children and staff may I take this opportunity to Wish each and everyone a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful New Year, Mama Kerry
Footprints got an early unexpected present today when we were called to rescue a baby boy abandoned in the bush land on Saturday and found by a young boy. He’s probably around 10 days old, desperately hungry and in need of medical attention!! Please, if anyone could donate to buy the vital powdered baby milk and nappies, we would be so grateful!!!! We thank you all for your dedication to our children but today, this was never really what we expected but as always Footprints 👣 has to respond to such tragedy !!
We've named him Nicholas after St Nicholas !!!!!!http://www.justgiving.com/footprintsorphanage

As many of you know we hold our Annual Charity Ball in November and I return back to Uk for this very important fundraising event this year to be held at The Belfry I'm saddened that my mum due to her severe stroke earlier this year won't be able to attend but on the happier side I'm delighted to say that Patrick was a granted a UK Visa (it's taken us nearly 5yrs to get it ) and he will be returning to UK with me ! It's his first time to UK and I'm sure an overwhelming experience we're so excited.
Once again I'm asking for your help, as Christmas is on it's way I'm hoping to take back some 'Christmas clothes' for the children so if anybody has pretty dresses smart boys trousers and shirts and sandals for 4-12 yrs girls and boys I'd be truly grateful thank you mama Kerry x please PM for details of place to leave the items !!!!!
The rains have come heavily over the last two days Footprints access road is completely destroyed it will take days if not weeks to repair.Today our weekly vegetables were unable to get to us we've been without electricity for days , however our sustainability chicken project is now able to feed our 35 children !! Eggs and chicken !! We can survive!!!
Friends and family xx well tomorrow the Kenyans go to re election again I'm feeling quite uncomfortable the Supreme Court have not given opportunity for opposition to stop the election but they have announced a resistant movement tomorrow I've listened to the current president speak and my gut feeling is let's hope he succeeds otherwise I can't imagine what might happen !!!
I've got all the children home today from secondary school so tomorrow we stay safe and await the results , but I will go with my husband as he demonstrates his democratic right to vote and keep this country on developing even if it's s a slow process !!! Thank you for your continued support our children are this country's future let's hope for them it's the right decision for them tomorrow
