Dear friends, supporters & volunteers of FOL,

On behalf of Friends of Londiani, I would like to thank you for your support, partnership & commitment to the communities we worked with in Kenya during 2012.  FOL has come a long way in 10 years and none of it would be possible without the part that you play in making change happen in the lives of our Friends in Londiani.

Merry Christmas

As we look forward to 2013, your support has made a big difference in so many ways – due to you more mothers are surviving child birth through the many services we support on Maternal Health; children under 5 are completing their immunisations at monthly clinic's supported by FOL; last year nearly 300 students attended school with your support; continued educational awareness on HIV/AIDS; several 1,000 more people have access to clean water that they did not have; a district of 250,000 now has a fully functional Operating Theatre due to your donations; less people suffer from respiratory issues due to our support for and installation of smokeless, fuel efficient stoves in their homes and schools; more girls have the opportunity to complete school as a result of FOL's Girls for Girls programme; 67 volunteers from Ireland and abroad travelled to Londiani in 2012 to work alongside our partners on the ground on FOL's on-going programmes and there are many more success stories that you have contributed to in one way or another. To keep in touch with all these programmes and more, please engage with our social media sites – see below for details.

I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. We hope that 2013 brings with it all that you are hoping for and we look forward to your continued support.
