Stop Coronavirus

stop coronovirus

61 families with children with disabilities that we visited last week expressed a great desire to protect themselves against CIVID-19 by washing their hands, maintaining physical distance and staying at home. However, they are challenged because they lack basic commodities like soap, they cannot access their workplaces and therefore they are unable to access foodstuff. Their children are in great need of medication, but without jobs, they are not able to provide. 

By teaming up with L’Arche Kenya, we can enable these families to overcome these hurdles and stay safe. You can donate foodstuff and cash in the drop boxes placed at Jamaa Supermarket Nyahururu.

We invite you to help a family with members with disabilities to remain home and stay safe.

From the comfort of your home, you could easily save a life by contributing through MPESA:

L'Arche Approach

The L'Arche approach is unique as it combines "living together", "professionalism" and "spirituality". All these aspects are essential if we hope to create an atmosphere of growth, acceptance and love.

Living together

Living together is at the heart of L'Arche, and at the heart of living together are relationships of mutuality and fidelity. Our mission is to create and maintain homes where each person (but especially the core members) will feel that their strengths and their weaknesses are accepted and loved. This way of life is intense and calls us to be particularly attentive to each other. Together, we are called to discover how our community life with its celebrations, friendships, and emphasis on forgiveness and covenants, can help each of us grow towards wholeness.

Professionalism

In L'Arche, professionalism goes hand in hand with commitment. To be professional means to have compassion and respect for others; to be committed to learning and increasing your knowledge and skills, and to be able to support people with intellectual disabilities in their daily lives and in their growth as persons. Being professional means being able to work in a team, have a sense of duty, and to be trustworthy and responsible.

Spirituality

Our faiths inspire us to be more open to people with different intellectual capacities, social origins, religions, races, and cultures. We try to appreciate the spirituality of each human being and to encourage them to visit their local faith communities. Most L'Arche communities are ecumenical Christian communities - that is, they are open to all Christian churches - and they also welcome people of other faiths and people who have no religious affiliations. Spiritual life cannot be reduced to any particular activity within community life, but it inspires and permeates everything we do and are.
