The Home: The decision for 58ten to partner with the Kitui Baby Home was finalized at the end of 2013 after seeking counsel and spending much time in prayer. It was clear God was calling us to provide for His children in need. In Matthew 25, Jesus teaches that when we serve the orphan, we are serving Him. Therefore, we have an incredible opportunity to fulfill the calling of Christ in our world today. We rejoice in the privilege and welcome your partnership in this new endeavor.
Facts about the Home: - Winfred Kioko, the former Assistant Manager at Mulango, is the new manager of the Baby Home. - The home is designed to house up to 44 babies. - There are 17 staff members who serve at the home. - Each child's life is significantly altered and sometimes saved by the homes intervention.
One child whose life will change is Caroline. Caroline's single mother passed away on March 19, 2012 due to tuberculosis. Caroline does not have any relatives who are able to provide holistic care for her. She was admitted into Kitui Baby Home one week after her mother's death.
Action: The 58ten community have committed and given $35,000 in 2014. We still need another $15,000 in funds (25.5 cribs) to cover the Baby Home costs in 2015. We are asking people to consider sponsoring a "Full Crib" or a "Half Crib". If you are interested in doing this please email us at Contact@58ten.com or would can even set up a time to talk to you about it over phone, Skype or even coffee.
