A brighter future for Kenya's Children

The Congregational Federation has joined Christian Aid in its CASE-OVC project that focuses on the challenges faced by orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya.

Christian Aid is working with expert, local partners to help change this. Their CASE-OVC project focuses on improving the health and treatment of these children, supporting the households they call home to become economically resilient, and strengthening the systems designed to protect them. Their activities are focussed on achieving three main objectives:

  • Improved health and social status of orphaned and vulnerable children and their families affected by HIV/AIDS
  • Enhanced economic resilience, caregiving, and protection capacity of households and caregivers
  • Strengthening protection systems that are responsive, inclusive, and accountable to the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children

Yvonne Campbell, General Secretary of the Congregational Federation, writes:

2020 has been a year like no other! We have faced challenges that we could not have expected and yet, there have been moments of hope, joy, and love. One such moment was the privilege of sending the pledged £12,000 to Christian Aid from our Syria appeal, raised by Congregational churches.

When we read Jesus’ words: ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness’ (Matt 5:6), we are reminded that as Christians there is a joy and blessing when we act and pray for a fairer world, and our partnership with Christian Aid gives us an opportunity to do just that.

Our 2021 appeal aims to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya that have been impacted by HIV/AIDS. The project will enable these children and their families to access crucial antiretroviral drugs and provide them with economic support and educational opportunities they might not otherwise be able to get. Christian Aid have secured a match funding of 19 times what we raise so our £6,000 will mean £114,000.

A key phrase we have heard this year has been to ‘build back better.’ We have the opportunity through our giving, acting, and praying to be a part of making sure that happens for some of the world’s poorest communities.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity! May God bless you.
