The House Next Door
The orphanage is better known as “The House Next Door.” An opportunity arose in 2011 to rent a house adjacent to Unity School. The Charity has helped a number of orphaned children with accommodation since we started in Mombasa, but now we accommodate 11 children and a Matron. This facility has also proved invaluable in emergency situations when we have had to rescue children from some very unpleasant circumstances. There are also children who become orphans and do not have other family members to look after them.
The charity also provides mosquito nets, mattresses, sheets and towels for all the children in the orphanage.
A local church recently raised the funds to replace all the mattresses. Two Trustees were able to oversee the buying of the mattresses while visiting Mombasa. The new mattresses arrived on the roof of a tuk-tuk.
