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:

What is L'Arche?

L’Arche is an international federation of communities where people with and without intellectual disabilities live and work together. These communities offer people with intellectual disabilities a home where they will be valued, respected, and their gifts welcomed and celebrated.

In 1964, a Canadian man named Jean Vanier invited two men, Philippe Sieux and Raphaël Simi, from a mental institution to live with him in a small house in a small French village. Half a century later, L’Arche is made up of 137 communities in 40 countries. The communities, while sharing the same values, are run in different ways according to their context and culture.

Effatha home became part of this international family in 2009 when L’Arche Kenya was accepted as a L’Arche project. Since that time, the community has built strong links with other L’Arche communities in the world, especially with L’Arche Uganda and L’Arche in Bangladesh.

Founded out of St. Martin CSA, l'Arche Kenya shares the value of mutual relationships between “the strong” and “the weak” as a source of transformation for all with St.Martin and ventured out to build on this its own identiy.
