Collection to support Pius family

On Saturday, May 23, our friend Pius Mudiwo Oloo died suddenly at the age of 46. We would like to help the family of our long-term volunteer and express our thanks for his great cooperation and support of Centrum Narovinu. Pius was from Komenya in the Siaya area and was the eldest son of an 8-member family. He then lived in Nairobi. As a volunteer coordinator of the Distant Adoption project in our organization, he worked for over 4 years and cared for children from different parts of Kenya, especially from Siaya and the Kibera slum in Nairobi.

Current fundraising campaigns of Centre Narovinu for direct help in Kenya

The whole situation in Kenya is quite troublesome – the number of infected people is growing. The schools will stay closed at least till the end of May, there is a curfew in place, capital cities are closed and many people have lost all of their income while there is no social security system in place. On top of that, Kenya is dealing with flooding and grasshopper invasion that have a very negative effect on the harvest. We can´t even imagine, how many families and children in Kenya currently suffer from hunger. Health and access to basic foods is  is really the most important thing at the moment, which is why we have announced two collections to directly help people in Kenya:

Information on the current situation in Kenya not just for adoptive parents

Dear adoptive parents, we have received many questions from you and we understand that you are worried about your adopted children. We all find ourselves in a very demanding and uncertain time, which is all the more difficult for the countries, which had struggled with poverty long before this crises started. Now that we have held an online meeting with our colleagues from the Nairobian office, with whom we discussed the current state of affairs in Kenya and the way we can help our children in this difficult time, we bring you an update on the whole situation.

The big THANK YOU for donation for the ISLAND OF HOPE Clinic

Dear friends, we would like to thank you very much for the support. Before Easter, we managed to collect 50 000 CZK and we used these for the listed below:

      
        

Coronavirus in Kenya – Collection for the Island of Hope Clinic

In connection with this situation, we also announce a COLLECTION for the Island of Hope Clinic on Rusinga Island. This is the only functional clinic on the island, and we would like to support it by purchasing additional protective equipment, oxygen bombs and masks, enough medicines and, if the situation so requires, additional staff. This would prepare us for a time when it will be necessary to help a large number of people in the area as quickly as possible.

      
        

Coronavirus in Kenya

Dear adoptive parents and dear supporters and friends of the Center Narovinu, we would like to inform you about the latest developments in Kenya. In connection with this difficult situation, we decided to take several measures: At this time, we strongly DISCLAIM sending packages and letters by mail. * If you want to support your child in this difficult situation, you can send EXTRA PAYMENT for food, hygiene and medical devices. * Another way you can support the health of "your" children is HEALTH INSURANCE. * In connection with this situation, we also announce a COLLECTION for the Island of Hope Clinic on Rusinga Island.

Thank you, donation for Ruth we have successfully finished

We thank all the amazing people from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Kenya for their great support and help. To date, we have collected the necessary amount for Ruth. If we can also arrange support from Kenya's NHIF insurance and the Faraja Cancer Center, not only the entire treatment but also all the necessary expenses (stay in Nairobi all the time, travel expenses, food, etc.) will be reimbursed, which would otherwise burden the family. We will continuously communicate detailed information from the treatment as well as the drawing of finances.

Peterson successfully graduated from university. The feeling of joy and pride of the adoptive parent was enormous.

You will certainly agree with me that the feeling of joy and pride is probably justified! My wife and I would like to thank you for the work that allowed us to help one African person to change his life fundamentally! Perhaps we can not quite well imagine how.

      
        

We present the stories of Everlyne and Danson

Promoting education makes sense! Support the Distance Adoption program and send one of the children to school from January.

Give your loved ones original gifts from our FairTrade Shop!

For example, soapstone elephant or hippo for luck. A gift made in Kenya by stonemasons Kisi and decorated by women from the Island of Hope will surely please everyone. Your money spent on it will support children from the Island of Hope where we return 100% of earnings.

      
        

When you have no idea what you are getting yourself into

It all started last Giving Tuesday, that is, November 27th 2018. I, a Serbian from South Africa, was part of the Student Council at my university and agreed to help set up an event for this relatively unknown NGO. They help women and children in Africa, which sounds very typical, but the reality was far from it. First of all, Africa is not a country and the founder of the NGO, Dana Feminová, does well to remind others that her project is based in Kenya.

Adoptive parent’s feedback

I’m really glad to help Hulda this way. I got the video with Hulda last week. We were all excited at home. It was nice to see her happy and that she appreciates education she gets. She’s really motivated and she knows that a good education means a better life for her and her family. When we watch this video, then it all makes sense to us.

Visit of our adoptive daughter Metrine in Nairobi

In 2004, we began to consider the long distance adoption of a child in Africa. After searching for information on the Internet and meeting with Dana Feminova at the Center Narovinu in Prague, we adopted a girl from Kenya called Metrine Midesha, who was eight years old.15 years have passed, Metrine with our financial support completed primary and secondary school and furthermore she studied tourism management.

      
        

My trip to Kenya, October 2018

Na konci září jsem se vydala na moji již třetí cestu do Keni, a již podruhé jsem se rozhodla ji absolvovat sama. První část mé dovolené jsem se rozhodla strávit v Mombase, a to z toho důvodu, že jsem nechtěla, aby mne má Christine viděla vyčerpanou z mé práce, zkrátka jsem chtěla nabrat sil, opálit se na pláži a následně, poslední týdny s ní strávit na Rusinga Island.

Thank you for supporting the education of children in Kenya. It makes sense!

Thanks to adoptive parents who have ordered short videos of their supported children, you can peek into the everyday life of families and make a better idea of what conditions children come from… This time we present the story of Huldy, who, with the support of the adoptive parent, completed the basic degree of education and is now studying in high school.
