Bedding for Children with Special Needs

Mom and daughter enjoy their new blanket and bed

On Sept 21, 2012 the children at Ekwanda Special Needs school received a special gift from Amesbury for Africa.  Esabalu Board Members, Shery Otwoma & Julius Owuor, distributed a mattress and blanket to every student. Some children board at the school and others live in the surrounding community. But every child received the gift of his or her own place to sleep.  Most never had a mattress or a warm blanket before!

The Ekwanda Special Needs school has received our help since we found out about it on our last trip to Kenya in January.  School uniforms, a place to sleep and books seem like a miracle to the kids and teachers at the school. Their morale has never been higher.  Each child feels that someone cares and that he or she is truly special.  – Deb Welch & Mark Bean
