CHARITY WORK

In partnership with Summerbridge Methodist Church we recently donated a number of refurbished laptops to the Cheryl’s Children’s Home and Learning Centre in Nairobi Kenya. Cheryl’s Children’s Home is an amazing charity and it was our privilege to help them. Please visit www.cherylshome.org for further information.

Cheryl's Childrens Home

Cheryl’s Children’s Home is a registered Christian Charitable organization. Founded in 1999 to serve children and the marginalized communities in Kenya, it is not simply a rescue centre for those forgotten, orphaned, abused, abandoned and hungry. It is a place for these children to call home, where they learn to know the value of a family in which they are cared for, loved and educated until such time as they can take care of themselves and their own future families in society.

The origin of the organization is Kibera slum in Nairobi where founders Sam and Grace, parents themselves, could not ignore the plight of orphaned and destitute children in the slum who had lost their parents to AIDS, different diseases and other effects of poverty. They took children into their own home treating these children as their own and this charitable act is modeled at Cheryl’s Home where children are provided with parental love, care, affection and guidance from a full time social worker who knows the story of each child. These children need time to heal, to trust and to hope again and at Cheryl’s it does happen.

Smiles return to the faces of these once forgotten children. And all are welcome. There is no distinction in tribal origins both with respect to the children and with the staff.

The increasing number of orphans led to the building of the first temporary structure that accommodated 25 orphans. With an ever-increasing need for space and because of a flood in the original centre in 2000, the home was relocated to Dagoretti Corner where it was privileged to receive a one-acre plot donated by the Kenya government through the Kenyan Railways Corporation.

At present CCHLC cares for over 200 children either through direct or foster homes. 80% of the children are orphans, 15% semi orphans and 5% from destitute families. The majority of the orphans are HIV/AIDS affected; however no child is infected. Many of the children of primary school age receive their education on site. Area children benefit from the school as well.

We recently donated a fully refurbished laptop to Thomas Cook Harrogate Sainsbury’s for their fundraiser for the Thomas Cook Children’s charity.

Thomas Cook Childrens Charity

Thomas Cook Children’s Charity was established in January 2009 with the aim of making dreams come true for sick and disadvantaged children.

Since then, more than 2,000 children have benefitted from a day trip or holiday, state-of-the-art touch screen computers and flight simulator software have been installed in 10 children’s hospices giving children whose lives are restricted by their conditions the opportunity to escape from their illness and fly a virtual plane and many children across the UK have become proud owners of specialist equipment.

Overseas it has also helped children in Mexico by building a school, Kenya it provided funds to a children’s eye hospital, put air conditioning/heating into a school in Turkey and provided funds for a hospital in Goa for street orphans.

Thomas Cook UK & Ireland pays the costs associated with the Charity. This means that the income received goes directly to benefit sick and disadvantaged children in the UK and Overseas.

Work is currently underway to refurbish the Congenital Heart Unit at Leicester’s Glenfield Hospital. This refurbishment will benefit many children with varying heart conditions from all over the UK.
