This house welcomes anyone. And I’m not surprised, these children need all the help there is available. We decided to arrange our visit to MCCH by contacting the house directly and very quickly received an invite to visit the children. In preparation for the trip we arranged among friends and work colleagues collections of the most needed things such as clothes, toys, bedding, pens, pencils, etc.
Having arrived to the house, we received a very warm welcome from the kids and the staff. We spent a few days playing with the children, learning about their lives, listening to their dreams and plans for the future. But most importantly we gave them our time and attention which they were very grateful for.
These kids don’t have much. All there possessions are kept in little metal boxes next to their tiny beds containing a few outfits and anything they managed to gather over the years relying on donations and kindness of strangers. No fancy clothing, footwear or toys.
So if you can help, travel to Kenya, offer your time and anything material you can afford – these kids need you! It has been an unforgettable experience for me. Otherwise, donate whatever you can – even a small gesture will put a smile on a kid’s face.
