A Helper

My name is Amstrong Wawire. I am (15 fifteen) years old. I am is standard (8)Eight at Amalemba Primary School. I lost both my parents in 2000 at the age of 4 (yrs), but while all hope had gone, through the grace of God Kakamega Orphans Care Centre came to my rescue. They now support me by providing my basic needs including education. It is my prayer that many kind people will be touched to support this Home to help us to the end.
