Shelter

Our sheltering model not only seeks to cover the basic needs of the child, although at first it is the most urgent, we intend to make them grow, first as persons, and later as professionals.

We build a space of tolerance in which the caregivers and those being sheltered, from different ethnic background, with different beliefs and traditions, live together in peace, without exclusions. Our shelter is an example of fraternity among the different peoples and creeds, a sign of the cultural wealth of the region and of Kenya, and is a stimulus and example for the different tribes we serve.

We instill the values of friendship, cooperation and tolerance. We want them to overcome abuse, child labour and usual mistreatment linked to the dysfunctional families they belong to. Here they recover health, learn the importance of education and are offered for the first time in their lives a different future to marginalization and poverty to which they have been bound so far. We also endeavour for them to be happy.

The humanitarian work that allows us to have a group of healthy, protected and happy children is not enough, so we pay special attention to their education. They are all schooled.

Little by little, the constant effort is producing results and we already have almost 50 children who have finished their studies with a qualification and a profession and now have a job. More than half of these are women, a success in the fight against injustice and the human and social waste caused by the marginalisation of women  If you need some more details download our reports.

Paediatric hospital

When a child gets sick poverty aggravates it: living isolated, not having easy access to doctors, ignorance about the disease, lack of hygiene and basic care, malnutrition, lack of drinking water…

Since its launch in 2007, it has undergone several extensions and has become the leading children’s hospital in a district where some 120,000 people live, half of them children or minors.

In 2007, only 30% of the inhabitants of Lamu had access to medicine and there was a shortage of doctors for children, with infant mortality reaching 11%. Since then, the health care and prevention activities carried out and the health education given by our health team have had an important impact on the child population of Lamu, significantly reducing the prevalence of disease and infant mortality.

The hospital has a triage room, a treatment room, two paediatric clinics, two admission rooms, a pharmacy, laboratory and more. The vaccination, HIV, renutrition and tuberculosis units mean that all of the malnourished children or those with HIV/tuberculosis can be immunised and have documented monitoring.

The hospital treats from 8 to 10 thousand clinical cases a year at the premises and at visits undertaken to the isolated villages which have no other medical assistance. Voluntary Spanish doctors and nurses stay temporarily with us assisting children and training Kenyan sanitary staff. iIf you need some more details download our reports.

Community aid

When half of the county’s population lives on incomes below 1 euro per day, our dedication to children needs to be complemented by other actions. Our day to day is always urgent

We operate in an area of ​​endemic poverty where the situation is aggravated by the backwardness of life in the countryside, the endless drought and the nearby war in Somalia and its many refugees.
