The Mothers‘ Mercy Home (MMH) is a children’s home for orphans, which was founded in 2001 by the women of the Mount Kenya South diocese of the Anglican Church. Many of the children lost their parents to HIV.
Cargo Human Care supports the children since 2004 with clothes, medical aid and in 2008 constructed a new building with room for a total of 128 orphans.
Since 2009, Cargo Human Care finances the salaries of 3 additional Mothers who feed and care for the children with a great deal of commitment.
The aim is to prepare the children for an independent life and to enable them to later earn their own way. For this, a good education is an important prerequisite. Volunteers from Germany and Kenya support the development of the children through a number of different activities. Examples are:
- A Training Sponsorship ensures that the older children of the MMH are able to attend the fee-paying Secondary school.
- A small library containing selected English children’s books, gives children access to the English language in images, words and writing.
- The children learn to creatively and productively use their knowledge and talents during Summer-camp and at work and craft weekends.
Happy Mother’s Day!
