We wish YOU a Peaceful and Happy Christmas

We will look back to 2016 with much affection. Our trip in August inspired us to register this charity and with our little team of Trustees and Volunteers we have identified projects and we have worked hard to bring them to fruition.

The last few months has been all about the chickens and I am hoping we will have sent the money for 350 by the end of this year. I could write reams about this charity but I know you all have lots to do, so I will make these few points.

  1.  We could not have done it without YOU
  2. Thanks and my love to all who have helped us this year
  3. Your money and donations get to where they were intended this I can guarantee
  4. Phoebe Onyango is an extraordinary women and it is a privilege to work with her
  5. You change the lives of children with little hope
  6. Together we can do even more next year.

God Bless and Happy Christmas to you all

WE have bought 300 chickens and there’s more …….

Congratulations to all you sellers and buyers of the cards for “a Chicken for a Child campaign. We have sold 300 chickens and the number is still rising.

These chickens are laying hens who will provide eggs to sell. The money will keep the many orphaned children of Bondo in their villages with their extended families and friends.

This is such an a fantastic result thanks to the generosity of all you Phoebe’s Family supporter. Now for some more credits.

Locks Heath Rotary  20 chickens

Hampshire Writers Society 24 chickens

Whiteley Primary School 21 chickens

Many thanks to Michelle, Becky, Sam, Sally and Elaine and everyone else who sold cards for us. You can still buy them contact us through this site or email  info@phoebesfamily.com

The cards are just £5 and they make a great gift in the real spirit of Christmas. Just a reminder of what they look like!

When Sally met Samantha they sold 123 chickens

Well this is just fantastic news to be able to tell you all, that the chicken sellers of The New Forest Community Church sold an amazing 123 chicken cards at £5 each and I am just about to transfer that and other donations to Mama Phoebe.

The cards are tokens are a perfect gift to give in the real spirit of Christmas. When you buy a card you pay for a laying hen to be purchased in Bondo, Kisumu Kenya and the eggs are sold to help keep the orphaned children in their villages with extended family and friends. There are hundreds of children in this area left by the loss of a generation and these children are the future of Kenya. To be able to feed house and educate them will bring hope to them, their communities and their country.

Thank you to all the kind people who bought the chickens, please tell your friends about them and if you need more see Sally and Samantha or contact me at  info@phoebesfamily.com
