A man who was caring and loving as sister Teresa.,his name was Peter Karanja and many youth called him MUIRORI.Crime was all over the village of mathare.We were beaten like dogs and our girls were raped.It was a shameful occasion which left a hole in my heart.Muirori took all children and kept them in a home where he fed them and gave them clothing.Many parents liked his behavior and supported him in every way. By God blessings he started the children s home known as Imani children s home.Right now he is being supported by many organizations like global giving
