Blackbird Leys & Abingdon Groups in Kenya!
Updated: Feb 10, 2021
In February 2020 the Blackbird Leys group completed their YoCO journey and volunteered in Kenya after raising £800 each. For the first time YoCO put two groups together, the Abingdon and Blackbird Leys group worked fantastically together and helped changed so many lives out in Kenya whilst having the adventure of a lifetime.
Here are some of the things they got up to whilst out in Mumias: - Donated clothes, shoes, toys, toiletries, school supplies, school uniform, stationary and much more - Fed local school children at St Irene's Day Centre - Fed and greeted sick children, newborns and their mothers at a local hospital - Built 2 houses for a local, vulnerable families - Cleaned slums in nearby Musanda - Treated Jiggers (tiny parasitic insects that burrow into the hands and feet)
We want to say a massive well done to everyone in the Blackbird Leys group for their hard work, support and dedication to their YoCO journey. We would also like to thank the group leaders Sam and Chantell who led a fantastic programme and accompanied them on their trip to Kenya.
