We thank God for Dr. Kairo and the over 26,000 MCF beneficiaries who are making a difference in their communities and the world. God, through MCF, shaped them into who they are today. Let us pray for all MCF beneficiaries, past and present, to find and follow the Lord’s plan for their lives.
George Kairo was rescued as a street child and the last of a family of four raised by a single mother. Poor and displaced from Timboroa in Uasin Gishu District to Eldoret’s slums by 1992 tribal conflict, the family lived in Eldoret’s slums. The mother sold homemade illicit brew to survive. The family could not stay afloat. When times were hard, George joined his siblings begging and scavenging for food. Life on the street was unbearable without food, education, or a future.
George, age 9, was rescued by MCF in 1994 and introduced to school, basic needs, and parental love. His sickly mother passed away in 1996. In 2006, George excelled in MCF schools from kindergarten through high school. He was awarded a full MCF scholarship to study medicine and surgery at the University of Nairobi after earning an A on the national high school exams.
George, a medical superintendent at Murang’a District Hospital, saved the life of a woman who had a cesarean birth eleven years prior and lived with a “forgotten” blade in her uterus. Dr George stated that the blade’s presence in the woman’s abdomen prevented conception. He acts as a mentor and appears on national television talk shows as an advocate for the poor and marginalized, encouraging people to assist the needy and live peacefully.
Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
14 You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
