Program KidsCare Kenya
KidsCare Kenya has two different programs.
The first homecare program is focused on social and economical support of poor families where orphans are housed. In total, this program involves around 240 families in 24 rural villages in the region. These households are assisted by a social worker and village volunteers. In addition, they receive financial support so that around 1800 children can attend school, receive medical care and have adequate food and clothing.
The other homecare program guides about 125 children whith mental and/or physical constraints. Each of these children have their own care plan. These kids and their families receive, in addition to social and economic guidance, often therapy, a wheelchair or other tools from KidsCare.
