A FIRE has DESTROYED the HOME of MORE than 100 Children!

Most of these girls were abandoned, by their families, to live on the streets.

Pastor Sam and his team rescured them.

This SCHOOL is the ONLY HOME they know.

When the girls dormitory caught fire, the emergency fire teams were contacted - they never arrived!!.

These girls lost their home, bedding, clothing, personal items, and school supplies.

Thankfully, no lives were lost in the fire.

But several children and adults were injured while trying to contain the flames.

This school is only one part of Blessings Hope Centre.

Sam has adopted more than 700 children!!

He and his team are constantly struggling for finances enough to house and feed so many.

To rebuild tis dormitory is no small feat....nearly impossible without our help.

Your help is desperately needed!

EMERGENCY FOOD for 750 Children


This month, Pastor Sam had to make the difficult choice between water and food for the children.

  • This week the children have eaten one meal a day.

Today I found about the crisis, and we were able to send some funds…..But more is needed to help these dear people weather this emergency.

This month the orphanage’s well water pump needed to be replaced, and so food funds were used in order that children would have necessary-for-life water.


Thank you for any help you can give today.

We are happy to report that Pastor Samuel is Safe!

Samuel is pastor of Blessings Hope Orphanage. He also travels often to aid the impoverished people of Pokot. I heard from him today - He is Safe!

He asks for our prayers, and tells me that dangerous rains and flooding are throughout all of Kenya.

Please consider giving so we can continue to help

Kenya landslides: At least 36 killed as homes swept away amid torrential rain

December 24,  2019

Due to the heavy rains, new government regulations, and other factors, Blessings Hope's orphan dormitories have been condemned, demolished and are being rebuilt.

This is a very costly effort ($30,000 USD) for a group of people who struggle daily to feed approximately 300 children.

Thankfully the school is still standing and operational. But the children have been temporarily separated and housed elsewhere.

As of today, there is still a need of $20,000 to finish this huge project. Pastor Samuel sends his heartfelt thanks to anyone who is willing to join him by giving.

URGENT NEED for $500

Blessings Hope Center has been without electricity for five days!

Added expenses to keep the school up to code for COVID-19 has forced Pastor Sam has made the difficult choice to use funds designated for housing utilities to comply with local regulations. Without compliance the school would be forced to close.

So the school remains open but housing electricity has been turned off.

Please consider giving! Even if it is just a few dollars! No amount is too small. When we put it all the small donations together we can make a difference!
