Harite’s mother was suffering from mental illness!! Her mother was called Mary. She came to Ogembo Sub-county with a child of 5 years (Harite) from unknown place. Mary could spend the night in public facilities like schools and sometimes in the street together with other vulnerable children.
Harite could face challenges of being raised up with mentally disturbed parent but at her age she could not realize the condition of her mother. In the year 2018 we were shocked one morning that Mary was found dead, but her child Harite was walking around her dead mother’s body!!! Not knowing she was no more!!!
Her body was buried at Nyambera Cemetery. We had to pick the child and come with her in the orphanage through sympathy. Later on Pastor Vincent took her to Kimai Primary School after we bought her school uniforms, books and a pencil. Upon reaching at school Harite was questioned by class one teacher and the teacher enrolled her in that class.
We asked our upper classes orphanage children to keep coaching Harite evening times daily after school and by the grace of God Harite is now in class 5. Harite is very proud to be in the orphanage and she is delighted to receive good care and love in this premise, She is a polite girl. She likes making decorations and she wants to be a decorator in the church after school. This girl Harite say that pastor Donald, mom Vivian and the log church have been a great blessing to her life. Thanks for your donations
Emmanuel Angwenyi, 10 year old boy found abandoned in 2017
Emmanuel’s mother was a prostitute in Nyakuerigeri bar located at Mogonga. She served in this bar right from the early age of 16 years to 23 years when she conceived and bore Emmanuel while staying within the bar premises. When Emmanuel was six years old his mother went through medical examination and the doctor diagnosed her with HIV/AIDs. The same evening after the test, she hanged herself in the room where she was living and died, whereby she left an orphan.
Since the family background of Emmanuel’s mother was not known the government ordered the bar owner to adopt this child Emmanuel but he refused. After persistent pressure from the government the bar owner took Emmanuel to his home but conflict started among the family members wanting this kid Emmanuel to leave their home. Because of disagreement the bar owner went to unknown place and one month later his wife also chased Emmanuel from their family.
This boy Emmanuel became homeless for the one week until when a certain lady brought him to our orphanage as a good Samaritan requesting us to admit Emmanuel and give him care. It was a challenge for us to accept Emmanuel but the situation was really demanding!!!That is how this young boy became part of the orphans.
Now Emmanuel is in class two and he performs very well. Emmanuel is thankful to be in the caring hands of God through the support of Pastor Donald and friends. He is also very much excited to join school like other kids and he has a passion to be a pastor. Emmanuel always that life is good in the orphanage.
