Family Care Missions is comprised of full- and part-time volunteers dedicating their lives to helping the underprivileged and disadvantaged of society. Family Care Missions devotes time to locating needy projects in an effort to raise awareness and sponsorship for the “poorest of the poor”. With a big THANK YOU -- our sponsors, friends and co-workers -- we would like to update you of our efforts to make life better for those in need of help!

With the “Buckets of Love” and “Care Package Program”, during the Christmas Season, thousands of 10kg Food Rations were distributed. The recipients were needy Aids patients and their children, those who are ill and bedridden and the elderly who live in poor areas of town.

  • Family Care Missions has been working in collaboration with the Olives Rehabilitation Program in Mombasa since 2000. The Feeding Program which caters to over 300 school children daily continues to receive regular support from FCM. During regular visits to the Center new Initiatives to keep meeting the rising need are being discussed and implemented.
  • Throughout the year three free Medical Camps were organized by Family Care Missions and supported by well wishers. Approximately 10,000 patients received Free Medical Care, Lab Tests, and VTC Counseling. Hundreds of the neediest families, which often consist of Single-Parent or Teenage-led Households, received food packages as well.
  • Through sponsorship, the Stev-In School Project for underprivileged children has been renovated with a new floor for all five classrooms, wall panels, blackboards and transparent roofing sheets for better lighting. In December the construction of a much needed new latrine was completed. New books were donated to the library.
  • The New Hope Orphanage received donations of shoes, toys, stationary material, besides the regular food donations for the Children’s Feeding Program which reaches out to the underprivileged and elderly in the surrounding community as well. A self-help project in form of handmade Greeting Cards is being supported by FCM.
  • An Early Learning Center in Kibera received a Kuni Stove with pots and kitchen work area to better cater for the lunches of over 200 children. The environmental friendly Stove has been a big saving in the use of charcoal and can also be heated with wood scraps.
