Support orphanage in Kenya
Requested byLiving Water Group Centre
Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?
This orphanage has been running since 2000 and has 88 orphans. These orphans get their basic life needs and their education met through donations from well-wishers. Lately, the orphanage has been experiencing financial difficulties. Since December, 2007 Kenya has experienced political violence and drought/ famine since, leaving hundreds and hundreds of families homeless, left hundreds of children orphaned and left many hungry because many people were running from their homes and for their lives to the places that were not affected by the political war. This orphanage was ‘lucky’ among others since it wasn’t directly affected by the crashes. Those families that moved to this area are begging this orphanage to admit their children but the cost of living has become so high such that it cannot take more kids in because as for now, they do not have enough resources to feed the once that are already there.
What is your project and how will it help?
We make sure that all orphans and needy children in our area meet basic education and medical attention. We aim to build an orphanage home, providing the orphans with medicines, school fees, uniforms, cloths, shoes and outfits. In order to maintain our current standard, and accept some of all the new orphans that has arrived in our area, we ask for financial assistance.
How can other people partner with you on your project?

We also seek an advocacy partner for HIV/AIDS awareness.
