Many orphans leaves without hope for a better tomorrow because most of them get a cold shoulder by their own family members. Mrs. Oluch acted as a role model to the entire country.Simply because she decided to give refuge to the children whose parents died from Aids. she took them from zero to hero by taking them to school and giving them love and care more than a mothers love.She also used to tell people that Aids is just like disease like others and people affected should be given equality and total respect to avoid discrimination black to black. The needy orphans can nowadays have something to recall on and face to smile there were nutured well given education that makes them be on top of the world, despite being a second class Kenyan she managed to do all these without any help or support from anybody.
