In 2007 Kerry Watson from the UK spent time as a volunteer in the rural village of Majimboni in the Shimba Hills of Kenya. She was immediately humbled by the community's daily struggle to survive and was especially affected by the plight of children who had been orphaned or neglected.
In January 2008 she returned to Kenya and personally purchased an acre of land with a vision to build and sustain a home for orphaned and abandoned children who lack even the most basic needs, with the support of friends, family and local businesses, schools and churches, enough money was raised to employ local Kenyan people to begin construction of the home.
In 2018, Justin first learned of the Footprints charity and knew he wanted to help. He first provided a signed football shirt, for Footprints to auction and raise funds and in 2019 applied to St. James’s Place charitable foundation to also support the cause.
Justin was recently lucky enough to meet with Kerry and Patrick from Footprints, on their last visit to the UK to hand over a cheque for £2,500 from the charitable foundation.
