Shelmalier hurler and footballer Seamie Harding went to Nairobi in Kenya on the 27th September last to take part in Operation Restore Hope. This was where Humanitarian Volunteers give up 12 days of their time to Street Children in Nairobi, Kenya.
The project involves bringing a group of children from a Children’s Rescue Centre /Orphanage in Nairobi, to Mombasa for a holiday for 1 week.
Many of these children have been brutalised and abused in their short lives. They have never seen the Ocean. They will spend a week at the coast in a healthy, happy and friendly environment. It is a fun holiday for the children – but the fun is a delightful means to an end. Seamie took part in this very worthwhile project and he must be complemented on his generous efforts.
Seamie and the other volunteers enthused the children with their own special skills.
They entice them to take on challenges that will assist them in the future. As a consequence, the children will grow in self esteem and confidence. This short escape will be of enormous benefit to the physical and emotional development of the children. It will give hope and transform young lives.
