Why Rainbows?

Why Rainbows for Children?
The last drawings that Nicolas made before he died were of these two rainbows. After the funeral
service, we were gathered with family and friends around the table for lunch when my elder son, Alexander, suddenly exclaimed “Look – there’s a rainbow !”. The rainbow effect was caused by an ornament in the house that acted like a prism and projected a rainbow of colours onto a wall. As the sun moved during the next hour, so did the rainbow which gradually progressed around the room, shining on each of us around the table. As it shone on Alexander’s face, it was as though Nicolas was saying ” I’m here my darling brother – I can still touch you ”

In a similar way Nicolas has reached out to touch and help many children in need in Ethiopia. I love him and miss him so much, and he inspires me every day of my life.

I hope he inspires you too, to give whatever you can afford to the children of Ethiopia
