Original Christmas Appeal Video

We launched our 2014 Christmas appeal, to help fund the ongoing work of Kambakia Christian Centre and its Community Empowerment Programme (CEP), in partnership with our great friend Edward Buria . The programme is based in Meru in Kenya and works with vulnerable children and orphans to provide education sponsorship, including:

  • school fees
  • uniforms and books
  • clothing, food and housing
  • medical care and nutritional supplements
  • counselling and mentorship for those orphaned by HIV or AIDS.


Thank you to everyone who so wholeheartedly and generously supported the appeal. I'm delighted to confirm that just over £60,000 has been raised and will be invested as required over the coming months. The CEP term has started and your gifts are already being used to educate children and transform lives.


Edward has asked me to pass on his heartfelt thanks to you also. He is convinced that a high quality education is key to tapping the potential of Africa's children to become the hope for their communities and their nations. Your gifts are already bringing hope.
