Media Coverage

Press - How the media are supporting the Children of Watamu

We welcome media interest and can provide press releases and pictures on our Happy House and our inspirational Mama Sue.

Her personal road to the Happy House is an extraordinary story of love, courage, devotion and heartache - a wonderful story for any publication looking for an unusual story and would make a wonderful subject for a television documentary.

We are happy to provide case studies of children helped by Happy House or to work with journalists on stories affecting vulnerable children in the developing world.

Many thanks to the Blackpool Gazette which has supported the Happy House since 2007.
