Since then, Welsy Olara has constantly struggled to provide a consistent place to keep herself and her six children. With the money that she now makes as a beneficiary for KKU, Welsy Olara is able to provide her children with food, medicine and a home and dreams of building a new family home that will keep her family safe for a long time after she is gone.

“I dream of starting my own business so that I can buy a plot of land and build a home for my family that will protect them even after I am gone.”

    Thank you so much for making my grey scarf! It is absolutely beautiful and is doing a wonderful job of keeping my warm and wearing something cute. It takes skill to make pieces like this, and I am thankful that you were able to make this. I am so glad you are a crocheter for Krochet Kids, they are getting an awesome crocheter!

    Welsy Olara,
    I thank you so much for the amazing hat you made for me. I have been waiting to the the oxford 5207.5 forever! I have been checking this site two to three times a day to finally get it. I wanted to buy it on here so that way the crocheter that makes my hat is more random than buying it in a store. Your hat is amazing and keeps me so warm even though i live in Arizona and it doesn’t get too cold here. The hat will have to be kept safe for 8 months out of the year cause its too hot but those 4 months it will never leave my head. I Practically sleep with it on. Thank you so much and hope that you fulfill all your dreams in your life. You deserve it.
    Thank You,
    Chris Miller, Tucson, Arizona.

    I thank you for making my hat, The 5207.5, which will be my favorite hat for the rest of my life. Sadly I live in Arizona so the hat will have to be kept for safe keeping 8 months out of the year cause it gets way to hot here. I have been coming onto this site at least twice a day waiting for them get this hat in stock..I didn’t wanna buy it from a store cause i felt like the mystery in which hat i would receive would be gone and I’m glad I waited cause I received yours! Thank you and I am hoping for the best of you!
