Kenya Update – March 2013
a) Sanctity of Human Life Training (SOHL)
House of Hope organized SOHL Training in House of Hope Katito Chapel. In attendance were 45 youth. The facilitators were Pastor Paul, Pastor Jack and Dr David. The team shared about purity as per God’s commandment and repentance, no to abortion. 7 of the participants came forward for healing.
The graduation took place at the Chapel during the church service. We hope and pray that the team would be ambassadors of the good message they acquired in the training.
We also distributed mosquito nets to orphans about 30 of them and we shall need more.
b) Animals for Orphans
Unite 4 Africa, Inc through the animals for orphans program, gave three goats to house of hope. House of Hope gave the goats to 3 orphans in Katito community. The children will take care of the goats and when they give birth, the kids will be brought back to House of Hope for other children.
c) Mosquito Nets for Children
Unite 4 Africa, Inc collaborated with House of Hope to distribute 30 mosquito nets to children in Katito area. The area is endemic to Malaria and the mosquito nets will go a long way to reduce child mortality rate for kids under five. There is a huge deficit of the nets and we hope we shall get more partners to assist reduce the effects of malaria and mosquitoes to children.
Kenya is set to have its general elections on the 4th Mar 2013. The nation will elect the President, Governors, Senators, Women representatives, Members of Parliament and County representatives. Five years ago, 2007/8, Kenya experienced post election violence that saw about 1300 people lose their lives, and many more displaced from their homes. Unite 4 Africa, Inc has joined other Kenyans to preach for peace and that elections should not be time to shed blood. We are praying for Peace during this season and seek other stakeholders, friends, and partners to join in praying for Peace for Kenya
