One of our volunteer coordinators in Kisumu sent us an urgent request for assistance. Rose, a young girl, living with her handicapped mother in a hut on the verge of collapse were in dire need of help as the rain season approached. The only protection against the cold and rain were plastic covers over the roof and were in need of replacement. In addition, poorly patched holes in the walls allowed easy intrusion of strangers endangering both Rose and her handicapped mother.
Thanks to generous donations from sponsors, Rose and her mother now call a small clay hut home, a typical Kenyan home. The new home is equipped with a solid corrugated iron roof, windows and doors that can be locked. The two-room hut provides plenty of space for a cooking and sleeping. In addition, we supported Rose and her mother with a draw hoe and foods. Despite Rose’s mother disability, she has regained the energy and strength to work their fields and use their own produce to assure a livelihood.
We will accompany Rose and her mother in their pursuit of embetterment and will continue to sponsor Rose’s education.
