Childhood health affects adulthood. In Kenya, free medicine is not available and poor families often go without treatment when they are ill. Over 30% of children under five are stunted and more than 15% underweight.
Tuition, school fees, uniform and daily needs are met with nutritious meals, a warm bed, and a place to call home. Relationships are built between child and sponsor by sharing stories and words of love and encouragement through letter writing. Annually, we will deliver your letters and photos and the children will share their words of thanks and gratitude.
In addition to our sustainability project (The MACHAO Homes) and the Education Project, the children are in need of many other things.
There are currently 43 children living in dormitories at MACHAO. We would like to double the number of orphans to care for.
All children at MACHAO attend school. Your support towards their tuition and school fees guarantees their future.
