Dear Friends,

We trust that this short update finds you and your family safe and healthy. As we venture into our 21st year in service for poor communities around Kenya, we like to share our recent news with you. A big THANK YOU goes to you -- dear friends and wellwishers -- who continue to help make this work possible! Especially during  these times of steep increase in the cost of living, many face severe difficulties to cover even their most basic needs.

During our work in the slums and some of Kenya‘s rural areas, we hear many heart-breaking stories of hardship, sickness and lack due to poverty, which motivates us to keep reaching out to those who suffer and are destitute.

We are most grateful for each donation and assistance you are offering. May God richly reward you for your sacrifice.

Our Team Kicked Off 2023 With The Following Aid Projects:

  • In preparation for the new school year, various repairs for some of the classrooms were organized, as well as the completion of a new toilet block plus an added classroom for the Stev-In Junior School, where children from the poor Gichagi Community receive education.
  • Two of the Informal Schools which Family Care assists were stocked up with hundreds of kilos of provisions for the daily School Lunch Program that benefits over 300 pupils from impoverished households.
  • Hours spent in counseling and encouraging those who face terminal illness often caused by environmental hazards which are all too prevelant in the slums.
  • Hundreds of Care Packages reached into the homes of the elderly in the Uplands Region, as well as cancer patients in the Kibera and Kariobangi settlements.
  • Food stuff and baby clothes were delivered to the New Hope Orphanage who care for abandoned babies.

The other three children, siblings, were daily locked in a room     -- listless and malnourished -- while the mother went off in search for work. They were taken in by New Hope Orphange, the mother was given a job and slowly they are recovering. (Right) Colleague Sally delivering Food Aid in the Kibera slum.
