We are celebrating the 18th birthday of Adoption of African Children with beautiful stories

The Distance Adoption project celebrated the age of majority in 2020 – beautiful eighteenths. We were preparing a celebration, but the situation was not good for the celebration… So we celebrated with beautiful online stories. Every week, since November, we have published one story of a supported child and one story “Thank you for your support.” We will introduce eighteen supported children – and we will look at the places where the families live, we will see what the schools look like, where children go, what children do in their free time and what families live on… And in eighteen stories “Thank you for your support” we will introduce you the adoptive parents, volunteers and project supporters who support this children’s education in Kenya.

Supporting education makes sense… Will you join in too?

As part of the program of African Child Adoption – Long Distance Support Project, you can support the youngest children from kindergarten and help them go through the entire education system and enjoy a carefree childhood. You can also find children from different primary school classes who have lost their adoptive parents or high school students who are looking for adoptive parents to complete their secondary education. We also support young mothers who have studied very well and would like to complete higher education so that they have a chance to get a better job and take better care of their children.

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.
