Upendo Orphans Support Project
Several years ago the women of the Kilifi Methodist Church in Kilifi, Kenya became concerned at the growing number of children begging on the streets of Kilifi – a phenomenon not previously known in this small Kenyan town on the coast of East Africa. They realised that more and more of the children were losing their parents due to AIDS, and although most were taken in by other family members, the poverty level here meant that the families just could not feed the extra mouths.
Today, 56 such children are being looked after by these women due to their extraordinary determination.
The project is run by a women’s group from Kilifi Methodist Church but supports children of all beliefs: it is essentially humanitarian in its work. Find out more about the woman behind it all, Grace Mzungu, and her supporters via the website.
A number of our members at Heswall URC supports the work of Upendo by monthly subscriptions.
