Why Sara is doing this

“When I went on my trip to Nairobi with Comic Relief, I met orphaned brothers, Godfrey (10) and Maxwell (16). Their situation was desperate but thankfully the Comic Relief project AMREF is there to support children like Maxwell and Godfrey and stop them falling through the cracks. I want to help Comic Relief to keep helping kids like them.”
