Before I went to Africa I had this idea in my head that I would meet a child that I really clicked with and I would then sponsor that child to be able to financially support him/ her for their youth years. Given the circumstances that I saw it is barely impossible to choose just 1 or 2 or even 3 children. I now have this new idea in my head - A new dream. I want to sponsor the whole orphanage.

Pastor Mary started this journey in honour of her late son who tragically died in a car accident. She started the Body Of Christ Children's Centre by renovating an old home and began taking in orphans and vulnerable children; giving them love, shelter, nourishment and the education they needed. Today, BOC is a primary school and orphanage for over 90 vulnerable children. All this grew from the seed of one woman's love and selflessness.

Pastor Mary bakes cakes and makes jewellery which she sells in the local village of Limuru to financially support ALL of these children. There is no government funding, no financial support whatsoever. The Happy Africa foundation funds long lasting sustainable projects towards BOC, but Pastor Mary is struggling on a day to day basis trying to financially look after all these precious little souls with the cost of life. She has bills to pay, she needs firewood to cook and she needs food to feed the children. She needs money in her account incase one of the children need medical attention. There is no such thing as Medicare in Kenya and sadly everything does have a price on it.

I have a goal - I would really like to fundraise $3000 in 3 months to go directly to the Body Of Christ Childrens Centre for the cost of everyday living. This amount will be able to support all of these beautiful souls for the next year or two.

Spare a coffee, a chocolate bar, a pack of smokes or even an agwa bomb my fellow pissheads of Airlie Beach. Every little dollar raised will go so far. Please family & friends, I need your help. They need your help. We can make a difference!

You may say that I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one :)
