22 beds given away in Makongeni

A bed for a child.

Target / Goal of the project:

In Makongeni 85 % of the children are sleeping on the ground or in beds which almost fall apart. Due to this fact the Foundation Rafiki Kenia has decided to give away beds and matrasses. Every family could register their name for a bed. We hope that with the help of you we can offer as much as possible children a better place to sleep. A bed from size 1.83 meter (6 feet) at 1.22 meter (4 feet) included matrass costs Euro 65,00.
