1. Love - Everything we do is for the love of children and our desire for them to live healthy, happy, secure lives. 

2. Pragmatism - We work to understand why children become orphans and put new systems in place that break the cycle of abandonment.

3. Sustainability - We are committed to permanent systems change and the long-term wellbeing of the children, families and local professionals we work with.

Until every orphaned child is safe, well and loved.




our Values

Kioko's grandson was diagnosed with cancer three years ago. She was devastated, and didn't know how they would be able to afford the treatment.

But her grandson fought hard though out his sponsored care at our hospital, and today he is finally cancer free! Kioko is overjoyed, and so grateful that he is able to come home with her.

She knows that this would not have been possible without the support of our beloved supporters, and is deeply thankful for all the love and donations they have received. This duo's story is one of hope and determination in the face of adversity, and they are an inspiration to us all.

Cancer-free and reunited.

Patient Stories :

This beautiful girl has a mother who loves her enough to fight for their future. But she was born into difficult circumstances as her mother was a young orphan herself, but she never gave up on her.

Thanks to her determination,  she was able to find our hospital and her daughter is now thriving in our care. One day, they will be reunited  and they will finally be able to experience the love and togetherness of their family. But for now, they need your help.

The mother is still unable to support her precious baby while she attends school. By sponsoring her place at our infant protection program,  this little one will receive daily love and care and her amazing mother will be able to continue her studies and give them the bright future they deserve.

Family, together forever! 

Just a few years ago, this precious boy was very sick and his future looked uncertain. But thanks to the efforts of our  supporters and staff, he has made a full recovery and is now dreaming of a bright future with his newly united family on the Kenyan seaside.

He wants to become an aerospace engineer and build his own airplane. He also wants to write books that will change the world.

It's amazing to see what he has accomplished already, and we can't wait to see what he will do in the years to come. 

Daring to dream at the sea.
