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:

he first L'Arche house in Kenya is called Effatha which, in Aramaic, means “open up” or “be opened.” “Effatha” is a sacred word in both the Christian and Muslim religions. In Christianity, Jesus uses this word while restoring a deaf man’s hearing. He touches the deaf man’s ears and utters “Effatha” (Mark 7: 34). In Islam, Al-Fatiha (which is Arabic for Effatha) is the first chapter of the Qur’an and is a prayer asking God for guidance and mercy (Q. 1, Al-Fatiha, 1-7). The local community hopes that, with God’s mercy and guidance, L’Arche will help them to open up their hearts and hands, their eyes and ears to the gifts and needs of people with intellectual disabilities.
