MILFORD GAA club’s Children’s Officer Sally O’Donnell was one of 23 volunteers who travelled to Mtwapa, Kenya last month as part of a collaboration with the Ray of Sunshine Foundation.
Ms O’Donnell went to help build a rescue centre for abused children who have been trafficked in the sex trade from as young as three years old.
“They rely on the charity to bring some hope into their lives, and together, we helped complete the build of the rescue centre where the children will have access to support, medical care, nutrition, education and a caring environment to give them a chance of recovery.
“Children in the western world take so much for granted. The children I met in Kenya have very little, but it was heartening to watch them get such joy from so little and it reminded me of my own childhood,” she said.
“A special thank you to Clg Baile na nGalloglach, Milford, for the GAA kit, which went down a treat with the children in Kenya,” she added.
