Mission To Ease Suffering

Mrs. Njiru our neighbour went for a Nursing training college and was happy to finish her course on time. She always encouraged as that nurses care for individuals of all ages & cultural backgrounds. She told us that she was left an orphan after her parents died of HIV. Her aunt took care of her until when she finished her studies & got married. She is not serving as a nurse in Embu. In 2009, she was granted a reward for serving seven peoples lives by guiding & counseling them. She came back in Ebwiranya location,. Lwanda division where we all joined her in the celebration. This is a big improvement & achievement in her life.
