Widow Care - Kakamega - Kenya

In progress

In October of 2014 the Voice of Hope group made their first visit to Kakamega.  During their time in country they met some beautiful women who are trying to make a life for themselves and their children without the protection or income that a husband provides. Since that first visit the team has invested in capital projects, improving homes and living conditions and in food hampers, tuition, agriculture training and access to business training and  microfinance loans for a very very grateful group of families.

Poor in Life and Rich in Death

The Chilliwack VOH team's recent visit to Kenya was marked by loss and death, but also gain and new life.

They found Daphina passed out and lying in a ditch, but their field partner, Aggrey, and driver, Tom, were able to carefully and respectfully bring her back to her hut. She lived in deplorable conditions but the VOH team prayed for and sang over her, giving her a pillow and blanket that were a delight to Daphina! Although she recently passed away, bringing a sense of loss and grief to the VOH team, they also had a sense of gratitude -they had the privilege of bringing the hope of the gospel to Daphina and those near her.

Another woman, Marita, was barren, without a husband or children, and living with nothing in one room. But she was also rich; in death she was surrounded by her loving church family who treated her with respect and dignity as they buried her. She knew her Lord, and they knew she was home with him. She was dearly loved and the VOH team was blessed to have the honour and privilege of meeting such a godly woman.

Through VOH Widow and Orphan Care 75 families have received assistance. Funds are always a blessing, year round, since projects are ongoing.
