Naomi was first supported by CBCH in 2010…
…as part of a community outreach programme, providing a daily (and probable only) meal for children in the area experiencing extreme poverty.
Both of Naomi’s parents are dead, and she was living with her grandparents, who also received seeds and farming tools to help feed the whole family. However Kisumu experiences very hot and dry spells and harvests are very much dependent on the rains coming.
In 2012 she was accepted into CBCH full-time and began talking more and improving in her education. She is able now to enjoy a healthy diet, to play and develop friendships in a secure and welcoming environment. She is also able to participate in the lively worship life of our CBCH community, take part in holiday clubs and Bible studies.
Naomi is a friendly girl, who keeps in contact with her Grandparents nearby. She is sponsored by a wonderful couple who help her financially and with personal encouragement as she journeys through teenage years to adulthood, and seeks to find her place in the world.
It costs, on average, £1800 per year to care for a child with food, clothes, the safe shelter of the Home, school uniform, school fees for secondary school children and school books & pencils. If you would like to sponsor a child, please do get in touch. We ask for a minimum monthly donation of £20 but anything more you can give will all go towards the care of your child. We rely on people like you to help keep the work of the charity going to ensure children will indeed have a safe and happy home throughout the rest of their childhood and that when they leave us they will have the skills for a successful life ahead, finally breaking the cycle of poverty.
Call us on 01732 369303 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and you will change a child’s life.
