Please help Malaika Initiative for People with Disability Acquire a Van

I used to teach in a school with Teacher Grace between 1985 and 1989.

Her daughter married, but unfortunately, the couple later tested HIV positive, including the girl child to whom they gave birth in 1991. The mother died of AIDS in 2004.
In 2005 this granddaughter suffered TB. She dropped out of school for the whole year, but she did her final primary exam and managed to join secondary school the following year.
In 2007 the granddaughter suffered meningitis. She was taken to hospital but the doctors mishandled the case due to discrimination; she was positive. She became subconscious for a time, then suffered a stroke of the right side of her body. When she regained consciousness she was discharged and the mother asked to book the physiotherapy. After three sessions the doctor told Teacher Grace to the face to look for better use of her money as the granddaughter would die of AIDS.
Teacher Grace employed a physiotherapist to treat her granddaughter at home.
In 2012, after seeing what she had gone thru with her granddaughter, she decided to look for poor parents with similar cases so that she could help them thru after she had already managed the case of her own granddaughter. In 2015 she registered an organization, Malaika Initiative for People with Disability, to help poor parents with children suffering from cerebral palsy so that together they could help one another to manage their problem.
Her granddaughter whom the doctor told Teacher Grace on her face that she would die is now 30yrs old.
Today am working again with Teacher Grace, but this time to reach poor mothers with disabled children hidden in homes due to trauma. Ubuntu Village will organize them into a strong community managing their own destiny and that of their disabled children. – Issa Mbogo, Kenya Cares
Let us plan well and act smart to make our mission a reality that will leave a mark that can never be erased.

HELP FOR UNACCOMPANIED MINORS IN KENYA

UBUNTU; a quality that includes the essential human virtues; compassion and humanity. The word is from Southern African dialects. In Kenya in the Kikuyu mother tongue, they say, “ũũmũũdũ”.
 

Mbogos’ Quality Farm Products and Ubuntu Village during outreach have found a group of orphans and unaccompanied minors living on the street. They were sleeping in a makeshift that was destroyed, today they were sleeping in culverts. Now the rains have come. We began to pray for them.

Prior to this, every day for the past month Mr. Mbogo would go every morning and round the orphans and other unaccompanied minors up to eat porridge. He would cook at his shop for them. We started with seven of them a month ago. Today we are feeding 18 every morning. Six of them have already been reunited with their families.

The next day and after our fervent praying a neighbor approached Mr. Mbogo and offered him the use of a house for the obviously neglected and threadbare children he had seen Mr. Mbogo feeding. Now we need supplies and donations. The house has no furniture and the children have no bedding, since their bedding was destroyed by an angry person, as told above. Please help. Help us keep hope alive for the children that have no one and lived on the street until last night.
