On Friday (17 May), British High Commissioner Nic Hailey hosted a fundraising event for RefuSHE which supports refugee girls in Kenya and has received funding from the UK’s Department for International Development (DfID) through UKaid.
RefuSHE CEO Jailan Adly used her Twitter account to thank the High Commissioner for his “support and a lovely evening celebrating the resilience and strength of our girls.”
Also among the guests was Australian Deputy High Commissioner Jonathan Ball who described the charity as a “fantastic cause”
Dr Masibo Lumala from the Upendo School thanked Mr Hailey “for being so supportive of RefuSHE to offer safety and protection for the girls.”
RefuSHE was launched in 2008, as Heshima Kenya, by Anne Sweeney and Talyn Good as an innovative solution within the global refugee crisis built on the principle that every young woman deserves opportunity.
Over a decade later, RefuSHE has served thousands of women, girls, children, and infants through their holistic model and are the first and only organization dedicated to refugee girls in Kenya.
