Welcome note from the director; transforming our children’s future today

Welcome to St Ignatius Orthodox Child Rescue Mission Centre. This is a child care center under Ongata Rongai Development Organization, which is a non-profit making organization under the laws of Kenya. It is run by Father Samuel Macharia, (Ignatius) of the Orthodox Church with the intention of assisting destitute children. Most children in this area, Ongata Rongai slums (Kware) , like other poverty-stricken families in Kenya and Africa lack basic needs and are often victims of child abuse. We started in August 2015 when father Samuel caught the attention of many children unable to find enough daily food used to flock in the church asking for something to eat. He raised the concern with the local members but their efforts are unsustainable due to the enormity of the problems. I am, seeking your partnership as I’ve been doing since then. >> More about the Centre
