A friend of mine posted an article to Facebook about an elephant that has lived as a buffalo for over 40 years.
If you want to read the full article you can do so by simply clicking here. But briefly it seems this elephant was orphaned in 1970 and adopted by a heard of buffalo. She has lived with the herd of buffalo ever since and has no interest in being reintroduced to elephant herds. She has become a buffalo.
The story touched my heart.
It also brought to mind the children that we provide for at Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. Many are orphans. Often because of the effects of AIDS, malaria and other local health problems. These children have been ‘adopted’ into the home. Not a heard of buffalo but a family of other children, adults who love and care for them, an opportunity for an education, clothing, medical care and a strong Christian environment.
Our Administrator at the Home is Erick Owino who was himself an orphan living on the streets as a young child, frequently hungry, always in danger before he was taken into a Christian Children’s Home. Now as an educated adult he helps look after the next generation of struggling children.
Please help us to help these children.
Their only income is from Christian House Sitters. (All our income goes to the home) and from people who choose to either sponsor a child or to make an occasional donation.
All funds are passed through our charity arm T.L.C. Children’s Trust (Registered Charity Number 1156786) and we carefully monitor where it is used. We are in contact with the home a few times every week and know exactly where the money is used.
Please also join us in praying as we urgently need £6,000 to build 2 more dormitories as our facilities are simply not sufficient for the number of children.
If you or your church can help even in a very small way please get in touch.
