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:

Daily Life

Our daily lives consist of doing “small things with great love.” We learn and grow through simple tasks such as cleaning, cooking, sharing meals, and, most importantly, being together. Much like any family, everyone has her or his  part. If a core member, for example, is unable to slice carrots, maybe she can put each sliced carrot into the pot. “Slow together,” we like to say, “is better than fast alone.”

Our community is a place of welcome where people are transformed by an intense experience of community, relationships, disability and difference. "To live with" is different from "to do for". It doesn't simply mean eating at the same table and sleeping under the same roof. It means that we create relationships of thanksgiving, truth and interdependence, that we listen to people with intellectual disability, that we recognise and marvel at their gifts, and particularly their openness to God.
