Stop Coronavirus

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:

Outreach Programme of L'Arche Kenya started

On April 1 the new Outreach Programme of  L'Arche Kenya commenced its activities. It will offer therapeutic and advisory services to people with disabilities, with a special focus on children with developmental issues.

The Outreach Programme of L'Arche Kenya is not a new initiative. It was known for many years as the Community Programme for People with Disabilities it concentrated its activities on raising awareness for disabilities, on debunking disability-related myths,  on exposing the plights of people with disabilities and to move the community towards being more inclusive and supportive of people with disabilities. Through a network of volunteers and physiotherapists, many hundreds of children with disabilities or physical development issues receive curative and corrective therapy. 

It will continue to do the same in L'Arche Kenya. In fact, L'Arche Kenya was born out of St. Martin's programme: The first core-members of L'Arche were all beneficiaries of CPPD. As the programme was teaching the communities that people with disabilities when receiving the right care and attention can very well lead a decent life and even contribute to the community. With the formation of L'Arche, this teaching was put into practice, as an example for all to see. By reuniting with L'Arhce this intention is reaffirmed.

We welcome the team of the Outreach Programme in the L'Arche Kenya family and are looking forward to work together and learn from each other!
