Loyal Friend


Rafiki Mwema means ‘Loyal Friend’ have you read about of seen this wonderful site?

Rafiki Mwema was born from the need to support very young girls who have been sexually abused. There are sadly too many girls under the age of 12 who have experienced sexual abuse and at this time there is no specialised care for these very vulnerable children.

Play Kenya started Rafiki Mwema, a therapeutic safe house, to help these little girls make sense of the horrors that have happened to them, allow them access to any medical treatment they need, support them through the court system, and where possible to work with their families for a safe return to the home.

I am looking in to how DTLL can support this initiative as I just really love what they are doing..

For now I will donate and you can too if you fancy :)

  4. A bright pop of colour, a practical flooring delight. I'd put HAZA in my daughter's new and first flat... A bland sea of rental white!

  5. I'd attach a rod to the back of it and hang it up in my entrance for a POP of colour as soon as you walk in the door. I have the blank wall and the two down lights shining there but so far haven't found the right piece of artwork to put there. This is definitely the kind of thing I'm after!
