THEIR STORY

Rose and her crew of kids joined LFK in the beginning, 2006. Jemimah met this family through members of the community recommending them.

Rose's Son was Father to Rose, Musunza and Mwania. He passed away from Tuberculosis in 2001 and their mother passed in 2002 from the same disease. Rose immediately took the kids in. Rose's Daughter was mother to Mawia, Ngutho, Musyoka and Kalimi. She became sick in 2009, eventually passing away from Malaria. The Father left after this, leaving the kids with Rose. 

Rose is an amazing Guardian to these 7 kids. Not only does she love and care for each one, she runs a local store in her community to provide some income for her family. She is also the President of our Guardian's, often rallying them to also love and serve our orphans. Everytime we visit her home she gives gifts of fruit and eggs.

This family of 8 lives in a homestead consisting of 3 structures and about 6 rooms; 1 sitting room and 5 bedrooms. There biggest needs lie not in the house but in their need for food for the kids and also new matresses and blankets. The 3 oldest kids graduated this year and it's Rose's dream to see them go to college.
