Women And Children Health Care

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of WOMEN AND CHILDREN HEALTH CARE A woman who is probably a house wife in my community has very weird thoughts about giving birth in a hospital i met a woman who explained to me how she had given birth to all of her five children. She said that all of her five children have been born at home by assistance from midwives. On the contrary she had never taken any of her children to hospital for immunization or have the children have any serious sickness falling on them. The first born who is around ten years old says he cant remember when he was sick. Though they live in a very depressing environment engulfed with poverty and struggling with life , the children consider themselves safe health wise. My main concern was that how many women in the village escape medical attention at birth yet they deliver safely and children have no sickness. What about the day when there will be an outbreak amongst these children. These women need to be advised because this may cause total sickness for their children in future. Read more.

Map of HELP THAT WAS TIMELY. My name is Lucy Aquilina formally of Namirama Girls High School. I was supported to learn there by Orphan Child Care Centre as a result of the demise of my parents.

Hiv/aids Project

By a male, 22-30 years old, in Marsabit, Kenya
Map of HIV/AIDS PROJECT A lot has been said and done about AIDS but what drew my friend to do the project about AIDS was the fact that AIDS still has a stigma attached to it. This must sound cliche but right now more in the marrieges are dyieng due to this. She involve herself by visiting people with AIDS and assisting them by cleaning their homes and cooking for them because they have no one to help them. She also creates awareness about the disease by talking to young girls. This kind of outreach has made it good for the community now that others are getting sensitized and the ideas change more away from the stigma. Read more.

Motivation Is Great Stimulus To Success

By a female, 31-45 years old, in Kakamega East, Kenya
Map of MOTIVATION IS GREAT STIMULUS TO SUCCESS I have been in the charitable system for a while now. Since 2001 I have experienced a lot in relation to pain with regard to the less fortunate, neglected members in our society. As a social worker, it makes me fulfilled in contributing a lot to the burden of such children. Sometimes, I just by imagining that I could be in their position, I find a drive that directs my sacrife towards the needy. I particularly chose to join Victorious Children’s Home 6 years ago where we are currently supporting over 70 children. Some of them are in Universities, Colleges, Secondary and Primary schools. To us as the staff our motivation is the response and dedication by some of our children to work as hard as they do to achieve meaningfully in their own lives. We are able to cultivate hope sometimes in very dead and possible cases. Ruth- Social Worker at Victorious Children’s Home. Read more.

By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of I WAS ABANDONED BY MY PARENTS My name is Emma Sitiavai. I was abandoned at a very small age and do not even know how my two parents looked like. May be they even died or may be they are just somewhere enjoying themselves. But they exposed me to a lot of suffering before a charitable Home by name Home of Grace came in hardy in 2008 to try to help me. I was taken to nursary although I was very big( iam now 12 years old.) I was 9 years old and with a big bodywhich made other smaller children hate me. I was also attacked by chicken pox from time to time and home could be forced to spend alot on me. At school it was feared that I could infect other children. The Home therefore greatly assisted me for me to overcome the many challenges and even to accept myself as a normal human being. I now continue on well with a great dream of succeeding since the Home supports me in education, basic needs of food, shelter etc. Read more.
