Ndekesha Orphanage is currently in a run-down building with nothing but cracked walls. There are 16 children under the care of the Sisters of the Friends of Christ, many of them malnourished from lack of food to eat. There is no kitchen, bathroom, or any other basic necessities. There are two beds in the orphanage where 5 children sleep sideways in each. The rest of the children sleep on the floor. The number of orphans the sisters could care for can easily quadruple in number, but there is simply no funds for food, medicine, or any other basic necessities. The biggest need is to build a safe orphanage for the children to live.
One night at 3 AM Sister Beatrice woke to hear the children crying. Imagining her worst fear she ran to check on the girls. Finding them safe from an intruder Sister Beatrice did find one of the oldest girls hot with a fever. Thankful there was not an intruder Sister Beatrice took the girl to the hospital where she was diagnosed with major depression.
The children have all been subject to devastating trauma through their abandonment and through the hard lives they live in a shelter with no security.
Thanks to the generous donations of major benefactors the war damaged orphanage is being rebuilt! We look to generous donors to help us furnish the orphanage, once rebuilt, with basic furnishings such as bunk beds, cribs, a full kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, and a play room! See the blueprints of the plans here.
