The Children at Life4kids URGENTLY need your help!!
Saturday. February 1, 2020
Today, there was a fire that destroyed their home and all of the children's possessions, including beds, clothing, shoes, food, toys, school supplies, etc... All of the children (25) and staff are safe and have a temporary safe place to go to but they could only leave their burning home with the clothing on them, nothing is left of what was in the home. We need all the monetary help we can get to rent a new home, purchase beds and furniture and restock the food, school supplies and clothing. We want to get them settled into a new home as soon as possible to lessen the trauma they are enduring of losing everything.
Every little bit counts, so if you can find it in your hearts to donate, money or cheques can be dropped off at ReMax at 9457 Hwy 93, Midland, Ontario or simply click the Donate Now button on this website.
We are a Canadian registered charity and any donations over $25 will receive a charitable tax receipt, so please make sure to leave your information (Full name, email, phone number, and mailing address).
No child left homeless and abandoned
No child left homeless and abandoned.
To provide a loving home for homeless and abandoned boys in Nairobi, Kenya.
Why We Do It
Kenya is a country where poverty, deprivation, disease and neglect result in too many children being abandoned to the streets, vulnerable and alone. Nairobi is a city of 4 million. According to the Global Urban Development nearly half of the people in Nairobi live in slums, in grueling poverty. The majority live below the poverty line of CDN $1.50 per day. Because of poverty, children are often taken out of school to help provide food for the family or are abandoned.
How We Do It
We accept boys who are living on the streets, destitute, abandoned and alone in Nairobi, Kenya.
We can accommodate up to 25 boys living in the home at any given time.
The home is a family unit, not an institution. Love, acceptance and belonging are key components.
We focus on quality care, healing from trauma, emotional nurturing, quality education, adequate health care and quality housing, all provided with love.
Our boys are given dignity, respect, love, acceptance, encouragement, security and opportunity.
Our staff members themselves live in the family environment in our home.
All the children become “siblings”, and all partake in household chores and responsibilities.
Eleven years ago, our founder chose to provide a home for boys. Boys are more often abandoned. Boys are considered to have little value. Girls have value in Kenya: for their domestic skills, for their ability to earn income for the family and for the dowries they attract on marriage.
What Life4Kids Does
We rescue and nurture abandoned children in Nairobi, Kenya.
We provide for their emotional, physical, and educational needs.
We provide a loving and nurturing home conducive to personal growth.
We empower the children to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
What You Can Do
Costs are mounting:
The annual cost of maintaining our home with 25 boys is CDN $150,000.
- or CDN $6,000 per boy per year - and costs are escalating quickly.
More of the boys are now in secondary school. The tuition fees, school-related expenses and clothing costs for boys in secondary school are much greater.
Kenya is experiencing a drought. As a result, food costs have skyrocketed.
We need continuous financial support to sustain this important project. Please donate today. Or, better still, please set up a recurring monthly donation so we can meet the monthly needs of the boys.
