I Have Revived My Hopes

My name is Meshack Muyoga. In 2005 I was lucky having lost bothof my parents and living a hopeless life, to be offered a chance in Kakamega opharns Care Centre. Where as basic needs had been rarely enjoyed by me, through this Home they now were available including, food, shelter, clothing and education was also offered. we even got sponsors from USA who could visit us and they have continued supporting the opharns in this opharnage materially and emotionally. They have promised to even support some of us to go and study in the US. I have been supported to learn and now i am in college at mwanga E.C.D doing very well.
