I have been working in a volunteer capacity with HCHCH since 2004. I have been the home’s Director in Kenya since the start of 2009. My duties are many, but the most important area of my work is making sure the children get what they need, like education, food and clothing. I identify their talents and help them appreciate what they have. I teach them to be God fearing and that they should strive to excel in everything. I instill moral ethics in them.
What I like most about this work is that it makes me discover qualities instilled in me and I am happy to know I have changed somebody’s life. I have become a role model among my friends and I appreciate life and praise God for allowing me to work with the less privileged. What I like least about my role is when the kids need something and I don’t have the money to buy them.
The staff at HCHCH are hardworking, loving, caring, persevering and humble people. I encourage them to be trustworthy, loving and caring and to uphold moral standards. We participate in communal works, attend seminars and play sports.
This home has changed the lives of the children. One example is Malyki – an innocent child who was found at a public toilet, and since he was brought to the home he now has a home and “parents” to look up to. One event that really touched my heart was when Denis and Sharon were sick and in a critical position. I was really afraid for them. It was then when I discovered how deep my affection for them really was.
I really love them.
