Finding Family: Nduku and Kamene’s Story

Psalm 127:3-5 [NIV] Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. [4] Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. [5] Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.”

Nduku and Kamene, two young girls from a small village in the Yatta sub-county, have endured a life entrenched in poverty. Their father’s prolonged battle with HIV/AIDS and their mother’s tragic passing left them in the care of elderly and impoverished grandparents.

In 2022, the compassionate community health workers of MCF discovered their plight and swiftly enrolled them in the MCF feeding program. Despite the alleviation of hunger, Nduku and Kamene faced ongoing challenges caring for their ailing father, often leading to their absence from school due to financial constraints.

Touched by their story, MCF embraced Nduku and Kamene into the Ndalani family, providing love, care, and protection. They’ve become integral members of what we proudly call “The World’s Largest Family.”

Their journey resonates with the message of Psalm 68:5-6, highlighting God’s role as a father to the fatherless, setting the lonely in families, and offering refuge.

Let’s join together in prayer for Nduku, Kamene, and all vulnerable children, recognizing God’s provision and the refuge found in organizations like MCF.
