There are currently 7 girls from the PCH Home (shown here when they graduated from Primary School) who have finished High School and are studying further before embarking on an independent life of their own. Recently, Carol Wanjiku, the Ebenezer Home Social Worker, wrote down the backgrounds of each girl. These are now posted at the links below for you to be able to get to know them better.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of longtime house mother at PCH, Mrs. Elvilla ‘Kagendo’ Mburu. She died peacefully on Sunday with her family at her side after an extended illness. Kagendo was 61 years old and had devoted the last 10+ years of her life to the orphans that came to the PCH orphanage. Along with a dedicated staff, Kagendo poured out her love and gave tirelessly her time to ensure that the girls at the orphanage knew a loving God and had hope for a purpose-filled life. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. The whole PCH organization prays for continued strength for her husband, Kenneth, and for the three children as they deal with the grief of losing a wife and mother.
A fund has been created for those wishing to make a donation to defray medical and funeral expenses for the family. Excess money received will go into a fund for future medical expenses of the orphans and staff at PCH in Kenya. DONATE
A couple of youngsters in Toledo, OH recently decided to do something to help the orphans at PCH in Kenya. So, they setup a lemonade stand in front of their house to raise money for the orphanage. Grace and Reed Crowell raised $37.44 with their hard work and ingenuity. They can be seen here with a couple of enthusiastic friends during the event.
Thanks to people like Grace and Reed, the 47 orphans at PCH are getting the love and nurturing they need to become all God wants them to be. Please consider adding to this “pass it forward” idea by creating your own fundraiser. Contact Larry Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Or, to make a donation of your own, go to the PCH website at: providencekenya.org and click on the GIVE tab.
