Why this project needed our help
Founded in 2011 and currently housing and caring for 11 children, Karama provides a family life and moreover essential medical care to improve the life-chances for the children with HIV/AIDS. A team of UK and US volunteers dedicate their time to raise funds, gather resources and volunteer at the orphanage to improve facilities, secure funding and create a brighter future for young people with limited life chances.
How Juniper Trust helped
In 2014, The Juniper Trust helped with £1000 to pay for medical visits and a much-needed fridge/freezer. In 2015 Juniper Trust donated a further £1000 to help with the day to day running costs, new bedding, clothing, sofa repairs and a bunk bed and in 2016, Hayley Rudd, one of Karama’s UK volunteers participated in Tough Mudder and with the support of Juniper Trust successfully raised £3664.59 to pay for medicine, clinic and hospital expenses, medical supplies and transport to and from appointments.
What difference has been made?
The money raised will pay for much needed medical expenses and with 4 new additions to the Karama family it will go a long way. In August 2017, the Juniper trust donated £1000 which will cover the educational needs for all 16 children for about a year. This will help with uniforms, shoes, P.E kits including trainers, stationary, text books, exercise books, transport.
