Christmas came early at Bethesda Children's home in Nakuru as the Niko Na Safaricom live artistes toured the home to share and celebrate with the children most of who have been rescued from the streets and the surrounding slum areas.
The home located in Nakuru's Ngata area has been around for the last 10 years, and currently hosts over 50 children who are between the ages of 4-12 years old rehabilitated from different parts of Rift Valley.
During the event, Safaricom donated Sh 75,000 to the home for the purchase of books and also gave recreation equipment, food stuff and other daily amenities.
The children got a chance to showcase their different talents ranging from singing to acrobatics.
According to the project coordinator John Kissinger,"Our programme involves rescue, rehabilitation and re- integration, the biggest challenge we have is to make this children leave the kind of lifestyle they live in the streets and in the slums and make them the adopt a different lifestyle. What we offer is a protective programme that allows the children to get basic needs and education."
