David

In 2017 I was referred to a safe house in Naivasha, which is the town next to Maai Mahiu. Eighteen months letter my case was reported to the police station because the safe house only provides temporary housing but I had no where else to go. I lived with my aunt who was very abusive when I was referred to the safe house. She fled and has disappeared. I am an orphan and no one knows any other details about my family or relatives. I have some disabilities. I had no where to go until I found a family at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I am in 1st grade (Class 1). K01-CFH/157

I live with my grandmother.  My parents abandoned me and are untraceable. My grandmother is very sick with high blood pressure and she is diabetic.  She is in and out of the hospital often.  I miss school a lot and depend on well-wishers to provide for me. My cousin, Raphael, is in the same situation.  Our grandmother reached out to the sub-county children’s department for help because she knew she could not care for us. We were so thankful for the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home where we are safe and all of our needs are met.  I am in 3rd grade (Class 3). K01-CFH/158

My parents separated when I was very young.  My sister and I stayed with our mom.  She passed away from cancer on December 19, 2015 after being sick for a long time.  I was left to live with my sister.  She has her own son and is separated from her husband.  My sister does not have a consistent job.  Sometimes the landlord would lock us out of her rented room because she could not pay the rent. Life is hard.  I was thankful for the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home.  I am in 6th grade (Class 6) at the CFH Academy. K01-CFH/161

Geoffrey

I do not know my father.  My mom is mentally sick.  She was taken to the police station after we were found in the very cold forest by a Good Samaritan. She said we were in the forest praying and fasting.  She has never been concerned with her children.  We were dependent upon others to feed us and we were always moving from one place to another.  I am so happy to be settled in one place at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home.  I am happy my brother, John, lives there with me too.  I am in 3rd grade (Class 3). K01-CFH/162

Samuel K.

My mom died on January 27, 2017 and the next year my dad died on June 2, 2018.  They passed away from AIDS.  My dad was also paralyzed.  Life was so hard.  I was left with my grandmother.  She is elderly, sick and not in a position to care for me. I was in and out of school because we could not afford for me to attend. Often I stayed home to help with the chores and care for my grandmother. This makes it hard to focus on my education.  I am thankful to have the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home and attend school.  I am in 7th grade (Class 7). K01-CFH/163

Brian

Before coming to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home I was living in a safe house in Naivasha.  My aunt had brought me from Kisumu, where I was born. She then abandoned me and I had no where to go. I was living on the streets. I came to live at Maai Mahiu in 2015. I was not used to living in a nurturing environment and struggled to trust the people there. I ran away and went to find my parents in Kisumu.  I found them but they are living in horrific conditions and I could not stay with them. Thankfully I was able to return to the Children’s Home. I am in 11th grade (Form 3). K01-CFH/119
