“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give”… Winston Churchill.

We continue to thank you all for your generosity. It’s been truly humbling as the “Adopt a family”
 
Some of the real experiences among these families that continue to touch and humble us are:

For as little rent of 1000shs, someone is kicked out of their house together with little children because it’s too much for them to raise.

Rent arrears piling up, living in worry not sure of how long their landlord will cope up with their lack of money, coupled with little hope of getting any casual job during these pandemic time.

Hunger, lack of food surviving on a basic meal shared among a large household.

Heightened Struggles with terminally ill and disabled family members that continue to need extra care and needs.

A total of Shs 539,251Kshs has been raised in the now completed charity funds drive that ran in the month of May and culminated with the Kahara Marathon on 1st June 2020(Madaraka day).

The Adopt a Family support continues in June utilising the funds to support the families. These funds have been used to pay rent for some and bless them with an “Adopt a Family” food pack. The pack contains food stuffs to serve the families with a decent family meal for several days.

The Adopt a Family food pack contains
Unga 5 packets
Rice 5 kgs
Beans 7 packets
Dengu 6 packets
Cooking oil 2 kgs

So far the family has been able to support 44 families in the areas of Kitengela, Limuru, Kiserian, Mukuru, Kibera, Mombasa, Kawangware and Dagoretti and Mathare.
