Beta’s Kenyan-based team has loyally supported the Mother Teresa, Havilla and Baby Blessing Children’s Homes for a number of years. These institutions provide for the needs of orphaned, abandoned and socially challenged children and they also facilitate adoptions into stable families. Beta’s support of these beneficiaries has continued in 2015 and it was further extended to include the Nyumba ya Wazee home for the aged.
The Mother Teresa home also offers a bonding programme to new mothers to encourage those who have rejected their children to love and accept them unconditionally. Donations of toys, food and clothing for the 100 children that are cared for at this facility in Nairobi were graciously received.
Likewise, Nyumba ya Wazee – meaning ‘Old People’s Home’, appreciated the visit and company from the Beta volunteers, as well as their donations of food and medication.
Children from the Havilla home welcomed the Beta team back and excitedly shared news of their academic and personal progress. Gifts of clothing and food were provided for the 70 children resident at this home while the Baby Blessing Children’s home also appreciated similar donations including toys for their 80 children.
