Pilgrimage to Lourdes : 28th April – 4th May 2016Sep 14, 2016
For the two children caretakers from The NEST Children’s Home, Anna Kwena and Moses Omwange , it was an exciting and incredible experience to accompany Joyce Elizabeth (suffering from a leg condition that makes walking and standing difficult) to the Lourdes Pilgrimage. This was all made possible by courtesy of Princess Tana Ruffo di Calabria, spouse of H.E. Prince Augusto Ruffo di Calabria, Ambassador of the Order of Malta to Kenya.

The Order of Malta was happy to contribute to this worthy cause by donating some of the Etihad Airways blankets it had received in the context of the Blankets4Africa project. Terry Stobbs, the founder of Terry Bear Totos, soon after receiving the blankets, set off early in the morning to deliver some of the blankets/duvets to Githembe Secondary School where the recipients were thrilled to have them for use during the cold nights of June, July and August.
Sleeping Bags Donation To Thomas Barnardo Children's HomeJul 28, 2016
In the context of the Blankets4Africa project, our Order donated 570 sleeping bags (kindly received from British Airways) to the Thomas Barnardo Children’s Home on 1st July 2016. Of these, 236 blankets were distributed to Mashimoni Squatters Primary School for use by the younger children. The Head Teacher, Mr. Ferdinand Muzaya, in appreciation of the donation, said that the sleeping bags arrived at a most appropriate time for the smaller children. The second term is usually referred to as the “winter” season and the warm sleeping bags were also going to be used at home for extra warmth.
