The Death of Debbie Case of the Naivasha Children’s Shelter

I learnt today that Debbie Case, the driving force, behind the Naivasha Children’s Shelter died peacefully in hospital during the night of 30th December.

Debbie had been diagnosed with cancer in June.

Having lost her own daughter in terrible circumstances she put an enormous amount of love and energy into the Naivasha Children’s Shelter, which was opened in 2003. It is safe to say that without all the work that she put into the shelter it would not have been the success that it has become and it would not have been as well established. She leaves it behind in great shape with wonderful staff and a lot of happy children. To the children it has cared for over the years the shelter she set up has been a life changer, in many cases a life saver. Well done Debbie. We will miss you.
