wish list

Wishes come trueI wish that the world was without poverty, and every child born was loved and cared for.
I wish that all children were free from neglect and abuse.
I wish every child was safe and happy.
I wish every child could go to sleep in a bed & wake up to a breakfast.
I wish that all children who are suffering could be brought home to the Happy House.

Last year, Dawn Heather White in North Ireland threw out a £3 challenge to her colleagues asking them to buy clothing to the value of £3 in the summer sales for a Happy House child. Everyone took it to heart and we received dozens of items of beautiful clothing which ensured each child had a new outfit for Christmas. If you are coming to visit the Happy House  then maybe you and your friends would like to help in this way. Any size always fits somebody in the Happy House Family
Mama says: "Until our children came to us most had lived in rags and had certainly never had new clothing, so having lovely new clothes means so much to them. They get so excited when they have a new t-shirt, shorts or dress and can't wait to see how they look in it.
"To our children who were living in poverty or neglect, Christmas and birthdays were just another day - another day living in the shadow of fear, hunger or abuse.
"Now they are no longer live with shadows. They are safe, happy, healthy, confident and, above all, loved. Having a family Christmas, with a tree,trimmings and a visit from Santa, makes magical memories for each and every child.
"You can help to make a child smile, by sending a donation for just one small gift.
If you are visiting our family, we would be grateful if you can bring some of our ongoing needs. If you would like to be of help during your stay with some of our weekly food shopping. Uncle Billy is only too pleased to help and advise. billy@childrenofwatmu.net
It is very expensive for people to post gifts out to us here at the Happy House. When the parcel arrives we then have to pay import duty on everything before the post office will release the parcel to us. It hurts as the parcel is being for TWICE !

Please email Sue to say what you would like the donation to be used for  sue@childrenofwatamu.net  We will be delighted to send you pictures of the children receiving your gifts or of the food we have been able to buy due to your kindness and generosity.This method also supports the local community.
