Here’s just a few of the children at the Huruma displacement camp…
CAROLINE – 14 YEARS OLD
Caroline’s single mother arranged for her and her siblings to go up country to visit their grandmother. When the children returned they found a pile of ashes at the spot where their shanty used to be. They eventually managed to find their mother at Huruma.
MARGARET – 12 YEARS OLD
Both of Margaret’s parents are dead. She was staying with her grandmother when men broke into their shanty in the middle of the night. They were ordered to flee for their lives. After it was looted, their home was totally demolished. "It’s cold in the tents at night," Margaret says while explaining that she doesn’t even have a blanket to keep her warm.
NIXON – 14 YEARS OLD
Nixon is an orphan who was living with his grandmother in Mathare Valley. After the disputed elections, a mob shouting war chants came rampaging into his slum neighborhood. When Nixon and his grandmother heard their neighbors being attacked and screaming for help, they fled their home.
KEVIN – 13 YEARS OLD
Kevin’s father abandoned him and his siblings after their mother died. He was living with his grandmother when the violence erupted. They escaped as their neighborhood was being attacked. At a distance Kevin and his grandmother watched as their possessions were stolen and home was burned to the ground.
Please pray for these, and the hundreds of other vulnerable children and orphans at Huruma.
