During Easter, Christians celebrate the new life offered to us through Jesus’ resurrection. We want to reflect that love by offering new life and hope to a community in Kakrao, Kenya.

About Kakrao

In Kakrao, Western Kenya, most people make a living from agriculture but struggle to provide for their own basic needs. Unemployment is high and families experience hunger on a daily basis. With high HIV rates, many families are not only struggling to provide for themselves, but also for the orphaned relatives and widows they have taken in. Their situation is precarious.

Caren’s story

Frequently, it is women like Caren who are striving to hold their family’s fragile existence together.  Caren experiences hunger on a daily basis. Her farm simply does not produce enough to feed her children and grandchildren. She is faced with constant feelings of nausea and gnawing hunger, made worse by the antiretroviral drugs that she must take to keep her HIV under control.

Together we can make a difference

With your help, and through a new project we hope to launch this September, we can help to change these families’ futures. We can be God’s hands and feet, offering people like Caren the opportunity of a new life and hope. We will help them to make the most of their land so they have a variety of healthy vegetables to eat all year round, and some left over to sell. They will also receive the medical assistance they so desperately need.

We are asking churches to work with us to be God’s hands and feet in this community by making a one-off donation, perhaps from your Easter collection.

Alternatively, your church could become a Mission Partner, supporting and following the progress of this community over the next three years. In return for your prayer and financial gifts, we would provide prayer updates, photos and videos on a regular basis.
