On the 7th March 2018, H.E. Dr. Vincent O’Neill the Ambassador of Ireland, welcomed H.E. Ambassador Dr. Wilhelm von Trott zu Solz and the Deputy Head of Mission, Dr. Franco De Paoli, to the centre known as the Hands of Care & Hope FMSA in Kariobangi run by the Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa and supported by the Embassy of Ireland.  They were greeted by Sister Pauline who is the sister in charge and by the Programs’ Coordinator, Mr. Peter Agina.  In attendance were 50 children who each received an Aer Lingus cabin blanket donated by the Sovereign Order of Malta in the framework of the IAG/Blankets4Africa project.  The guests were entertained with cheerful songs and dances and were then invited to lunch.

 

After lunch it was the turn of the Madoya Secondary School in Huruma slum, another project of Hands of Care and Hope also supported by the Embassy of Ireland.  On this occasion 24 children were donated British Airways cabin blankets.  In appreciation, the children performed a short play for the guests to convey the plight of families in poverty stricken areas.
