There were 170 hands begging you for one because they love soccer so much and the screams of joy when they got one were overwhelming.
Bungoma, Kenya (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Fifty orphans in the ACK Madeleine School in Bungoma, Kenya, are wearing smiles and new soccer jerseys donated by NorthStar Alarm after NorthStar Alarm employee, Chris Grammer, and the Orphan Outreach program visited their school this past month. NorthStar was among a variety of other donors who donated items ranging from hygiene kits, toys, medical supplies, socks and soccer balls to children ranging from 4 to fourteen years old.
“The children literally thought we were angels that came from heaven to visit them and bring them hope,” said Chris Grammer, sales representative at NorthStar Alarm. “It was like the paparazzi trying to touch a famous singer when we began handing out the soccer jerseys. There were 170 hands begging you for one because they love soccer so much and the screams of joy when they got one were overwhelming. I’m not a man to cry, but I teared up over the joy these children had over receiving just a simple jersey.”
The Orphan Outreach organization visits orphanages in Kenya a handful of times every year and also serves in Guatemala, Honduras, India, Kenya, Latvia, Russia, and the United States.
