Children’s Stories

 

Moses' Story

Moses arrived at the Children's Home when he was 9 years old...

His father died when he was young and although there was enough to eat at home he wasn't in school as it was just too expensive for his mother to send him whilst she also had 6 other children to provide for. He was brought to Cherry Brierley Children’s Home in the hope that he would be able to get an education. He has 4 brothers and 2 sisters but was the only one that came to the Home.

He is currently at Tieng're Primary School, where all of our other primary aged children go and he loves social studies as his favourite subject. He is a super boy with a real heart for understanding the needs of the community and he wants to be a house builder when he grows up. He even knows where he wants to live and why! He has chosen County Kericho to the south east of Kisumu because it is a very green county so that he can be a farmer as well as a house builder.

Moses currently has no sponsor and we are looking for someone who would like to sponsor him to help care for him. It costs, on average, £1850 per year to care for a child with food, clothes, the safe shelter of the Home and school fees and books. If you would like to sponsor Moses, please complete the form opposite and get in touch. There is no minimum monthly donation but we rely on people like you to help keep the Home going to ensure Moses will indeed have a safe and happy home throughout the rest of his childhood and that when he leaves us he will have the skills for a successful life ahead, finally breaking the cycle of poverty through misfortune, poor education and few resources. Please get in contact, Moses would love to have his own sponsor and stay in touch with you with news and stories about his life and be able to tell you all about how he's doing at school and with his friends at the Children's Home.

 

Matthew's Story

Matthew is 9 years old and was first supported by CBCH in 2017.

Matthew is the son of Rose, a housemother at another Children's Home which has now had to close due to lack of funds. He is also half brother to Jeff who transfered to CBCH at the same time. The boys are half brothers, but are very close. Sadly, Rose was abandoned by both her husbands and as far as we know the boys have no contact with them (we’re not sure if either is still living).

Matthew enjoys board games, playing football and swimming. He likes school and doing his homework and his results are showing the fruits of his labour. He is a very responsible little boy and is good at looking after the chickens at CBCH – he fastens them in at night and lets them out in the morning. He enjoys wrestling with his brother Jeff and wants to be a sports car driver when he is older (but definitely not a policeman, he says!). He likes watching cartoons and wildlife programmes, playing football at school, telling stories to his friends and playing in water when the weather is very hot.
