Last week, Irish Embassy Second Secretary, Ms. Teresa Sweeny, visited St. Bakhita Girls and Boys Rescue Homes in the coastal region if Kenya which are run by the Sisters of St. Joseph and were built and equipped by the Ray of Sunshine Foundation Ireland.

The Ray of Sunshine Foundation is an Irish charity based in County Clare.

It was established in 2013 when a group of volunteers, who had previous experience of volunteering in Mombasa, came together and formed this new charity.

In January 2016, The Ray of Sunshine Foundation returned to Mombasa with an army of volunteers and built St. Bakhita’s Girls Rescue Home in Mombasa for girls used in the sex trafficking industry.

This year’s project followed that success with the Foundation building a Rescue Home for Boys used in the sex trafficking industry in Kikambala.
