We started the year with lots of strength and gusto and remained hopeful that at the end of the year we will look back and celebrate our achievements – united street connected children with their families!!. This remains our core motivation as child rescue Kenya.
As we come to the end of February 2017 a lot of things are happening – Districts bordering Trans- Nzoia where we are have been severely affected by droughts. In areas of Kodich Westpokot County for instance it has been reported that children are no longer attending school and many have migrated to Uganda but we are saddened most by the recent happening in Baringo where we there are reported cases of child abandonment as a result of violence resulting from fights among pastoralist as they struggle for drying out watering points for their animals. Our fears are that the violence is escalating and we will soon witness an increasing number of unaccompanied children flocking into the streets of Kitale.
Cases of violence against children have been witnessed in Nairobi, Nakuru and Eldoret and now we have witnessed an increase in numbers of children fleeing to Kitale town recently in our outreach point in town we are currently interacting with more than 50 children daily an increase from our usual 25 that we have been meeting daily.
As we approach the elections we remain hopeful that they will be peaceful although politician aren’t helping.
These incidences are indicators to a year full of activities and we anticipate more children in town.
thank you so much for Continuing to support our work.
