When a pandemic as we experience at the moment enters our lives, when all around us morphs into a state of uncertainty and chaos, a word of cheer and a deed of kindness becomes all the more important. When everyone rushes for  supplies to stock up on needed items, sharing things with others might be the last thing on our minds. But it’s often through an act of unselfish giving or sharing that we find ourselves blessed in some way.

Even though all of us are affected, some suffer more severe conditions. Our sympathies go out to the ones who are infected, those who are fighting at the front lines of Covid-19 and to those who lost loved ones. In Kenya, the effects of the current outbreak with its following restrictions have led to increased hardship for millions of poor citizens who live in marginalized areas, since many are day laborers. Unable to save for emergencies, hunger, uncertainty and the daily worry of how to feed their children has turned into a nightmare for poor families.

We‘ve heard of cases where children only receive cups of warm water until the evening when a sparse meal of Ugali and Kale is shared.

We are most grateful for all of you who have continued to contribute! Your giving has been enabling our Family Care Team to distribute more than1000 Kilos of desperately needed food items. Some of the supplies went to the Olives Rehab Center in Mombasa and to a Rescue Center for Street Children in Uthiru.

All throughout 10 Kilos Care Packages are being distributed to widows, single mothers, the elderly and orphans. We are grateful for friends like you, who care and who continue to help us reach out to needy families. God bless you!

We greatly appreciate your giving that reaches the homes of those who are most vulnerable during these difficult times … Thank You!  


Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy

O Divine Master, grant that I may
Not so much seek to be consoled as to console
To be understood, as to understand
To be loved, as to love
For it is in giving that we receive …“
