Thanks to the funds raised by our church, work is progressing on a more substantial and safer kitchen for the 96 children who now attend the kindergarten at St Stephen's church in Meru.
The replacement kitchen, a vast improvement on its predecessor, is now in operation with a dedicated cook ensuring nourishing meals for the pupils, many of whom come from extremely poor families.
In a recent email, the Rev Elijah expressed his thanks for our continued concern and support. Currently the aim is to extend the number of classrooms. Class five is using the church vestry!
Money raised on a Sunday is used to buy materials for the following week, so the construction is an ongoing effort for the whole congregation.
Our help in supporting the Meru stall at church fairs and the weekly Meru plate is greatly appreciated.
