H.E. Ambassador Dr. Wilhelm von Trott zu Solz, paid a visit to THE NEST on 6th March 2018, accompanied by the Deputy Head of Mission, Dr. Franco De Paoli and his spouse, Mrs. Marinella De Paoli.

THE NEST is a rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration centre focused on newborn children.  This well organized institution is run by Mrs. Irene Baumgartner an extremely compassionate, energetic and dedicated person.  She is assisted by equally wonderful caregivers who assist help in looking after the needy orphaned children.

On this occasion, the Order was able to distribute much appreciated crew blankets that had been donated by Etihad Airways in the framework of the Blankets4Africa project.

Among the many projects for which THE NEST would require assistance is the equipping of the relocated house in Kiambu West District, Limuru Division, Karanje Village, Runda-Kiguaru, Nairobi.  The Order has been approached to help to provide, among other items, mattresses for the baby cribs, lockers, cooking and kitchen utensils, tables, stools, baby cots, double decker beds and organize a social worker’s room.
