An alternative gift idea is to buy the welfare of a needy child for someone.
This is Esther.
She is one of four children living in a vulnerable home (they spend most of their nights in the cold due to their father’s heavy drinking taking up funds). Many children are housed in badly-named "orphanages" in Kenya while parents are still alive .. reality is simply that the parents cannot afford to look after their children due to the ravages of illness and poverty. Both parents are jobless and Esthers mother struggles really hard to maintain the family despite physical abuse from her husband. In addition to love and constant care, Esther requires assistance to continue learning, her Mother has asked for help from our good friend Wangechi in Nyahururu.
If you would like more information please contact AVIF. There are currently 18 children needing financial assistance at Wangechi's "Merryland" Children's Home.
