Welcome to my Africa dolls page: Enjoy!

My first doll from africa was given to me as a present by my friend Marie-Alix. During the summer of 2003 Marie-Alix helped out voluntarily for six weeks at the childrens orphenage of  huraman Childresn Home in Kenya. She brought me back a lovely Masai doll which is the pride of my collection.
 
Marie-Alix sent me an e-mail from Kenya which illustrates the joy that she found there:
 
"Mama Zipporah and here husband Isaac are amazing with all these
children. I never thought that a childrens home could actually look like a BIG
(and i mean big) family. But it does and despite not knowing where the
money is to come from, they never turn away a child. Since I have
arrived here there have been many new children.

They are so good to us too. Last week Mama organised a safari for us
volunteers. So we went to the Masai Mara for 3 days to see all the
animals...and we saw everything from lion to monkeys to hippos and
crocadiles. On the last day we went to visit a masai village. They still live simply in houses made of cow dung and sticks and live in the houses with their live stock."
