Part of being a child is to have fun. So, when some
university students led by a friend of ours came to play
with our children, there was laughter and happiness all
over. Not all children in the world are growing up
having fun. That is a sad thought... Let this be a
reminder to us all: Children have the right to get basic
needs including food, education and health care. But a
child also needs to feel safe and protected, and to be
loved. May we never forget to let the child be a child,
and may never the child be without basic needs,
protection and love! Thank you for helping Maisha Mema
to do so! :-)
The whole of Maisha Mema, children, staff and Marianne
and Jonny would like to wish you a very happy Christmas,
and an exciting new year :-) [from 2016 Christmas
