A priest in Gilgil has asked parents with children with disabilities not to detach them from the society to avoid embarrassment.
Fr Vincent Marube of the Holy Spirit Catholic Parish implored parents to nurture their physically challenged children with love, care and kindness.
"Do not lock them up because they are gifts from God. Nobody should despise or ignore them," Marube said. The priest was donating Christmas gifts to the aged and physically challenged.
He encouraged the parents to apply for the funds allocated to people with disabilities to enable them take care of their children.
The National Fund for the Disabled in Kenya, under the Office of the Prime Minister, provides grants to the physically challenged.
