Halima is an 86 years old grandma who lost her home and most of her belongings in the current flooding in Garissa County, Kenya.
We are thrilled to announce that we will shortly be welcoming babies into our new Happy Hearts safe home in South Somalia!
It was an immense joy and privilege to help thousands of incredibly resilient families recover from the effects of last year's drought.
Happy Hearts facilitators were among the first to respond with providing means for emergency care, such as medical treatment, as well as emotional support.
Currently only 17% of Somali children go to school and the majority are boys. Happy Hearts is helping to reverse this trend by giving girls their power back by sponsoring their education.
We have provided our first science lab, enabling the students of a school in Mogadishu to have a hands-on learning experience of the world around them.
