On the advice of Nancy, currently in Maseno, Western Kenya, at the Jehovah Nissi Mercy Childrens Centre, here are a few items you might consider bringing to each of our hosts.

Items can be purchased cheaply in Nairobi or brought from home and all are relatively small :

  • Solar Mobile/cell charger (the whole group could share the cost then donate to your host)
  • Simple diaries for the older children
  • Big bottle of Advil / Nurofen for common cramps/ headaches (esp for the older girls during periods)
  • Spiral notebooks, pens
  • Umbrellas – the kind that fold up small – “it rained/poured the other day and the children all just got soaked with only thier sweaters”
  • Rubber bands for holding up school socks – “can’t find any in market)”
  • Simple cloth book bags
  • Toothpaste

All these items are easy to carry and much needed. Many thanks to you all.
