YEAR SHE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE 2018
HOW WE GOT HER: FROM STREET AFTER POST ELECTION VIOLANCE
Elizabeth was raised by a single mother who lived at Rongo since the year 2005. She gave birth to Elizabeth at Rongo market. When Elizabeth tried to enquire about their family background from her mother, the mother used to rebuke her and eventually told her daughter Elizabeth that she was misplaced. She always told Elizabeth to stop asking about their family background but instead work hard in school!!
Unfortunately the mother of Elizabeth was slaughtered by violence perpetrators who attacked the flat where they were living inside and by good luck Elizabeth had gone for sugar at the shop!! On her way back to the house she saw these perpetrators cutting her mother’s neck and other neighbors were tightly held also to be killed.
She threw down the sugar and in her hand she was having a change of 150 Shillings from sugar, she picked a motor bike and escaped to Nyamarambe sub-county. She did not wish to go back to their rental house at Rongo again where her beloved mother was killed before her eyes due to 2012 -2013 post-election violence.
One of the teachers at Nyakeyo primary school adopted Elizabeth to his home and later in November the year 2017 the teacher’s family migrated to the nearby country of Tanzania leaving Elizabeth in the care of their elder brother. This brother chased Elizabeth from his home due to pressure from his wife who did not want Elizabeth to be adopted to their family.
Elizabeth ran to the street and we found her in need of our help we listened to her and came with her to the orphanage. She is now peaceful in the orphanage and she congratulates Pastor Donald and the friends in the USA for the hand of support. She likes cleaning the church and reciting memory verses. She has a passion of becoming a teacher of the word of God .

Kevin’s mother was a drunkard and she lived in a place called Ekona near our Sengera Market. His mother left home one morning and she never returned to the house where they lived.
Three days later she was still missing, so the clan elder called us to the scene and requested us to adopt this young kid Kevin to the orphanage by the mercies of God as they will be looking for his mother. He persuaded us that if his mother will be found then she will pick her son Kevin from the orphanage.
Since January 2018 we have not managed to find Kevin’s mother. The story is still complicated!!! We don’t know if she is alive or dead!!This young boy is still staying in the orphanage since the year 2018 and we took him to school, he is in STD 1 now.
Kevin is not even thinking about the missing of his mother because he is taken care of in the orphanage and he is joyful always. He likes dancing in the church and wants to be a singer. Keep him in prayer.
