Community Day at Nyeri - Kieni West Children's Home

The visit to this orphanage placed somewhere out of Mweiga town has been at first somehow shocking, as we saw how these 40 children live in extreme poverty.

The orphanage is privately held by a widow and supported only by donations. Children go to nearby schools and most of the donations go for school fees.

They have no running water, no power, live togheter in overcrowded sheds, still they never stopped smiling.
We could do very little for these children, but playing with them and donate clothes, toys, pens, paper and shoes. We then decided to collect some money for them - a drop in the ocean.

I am looking forward to visit them again when my family will join me after assignment.
