I could not resist sending Phoebe love and best wishes on her birthday. A woman who has loved and cared for hundreds of children.
Here are some pictures of this wonderful woman who does such life changing work in Kisumu Kenya. A lady with a big heart and endless energy Happy Birthday and blessings to you Bishop Phoebe Onyango

How many of us around the world take for granted that we will have a house for our old age. These house will vary greatly of course but most of us will have running water, heating and a place to sleep and cook. NOT so the elderly in Kisumu Kenya. For all sorts of reasons many elderly people end up living in awful conditions. Sometimes they have just outlived their families or their circumstances have been changed by death.
I have seen with my own eyes how some of these elderly folks live after a life time of work or service to their community and it is heartbreaking. Phoebe extends her family love and care to these elderly people and especially the widows, women who take on huge family responsibilities and work until they drop.
Could you help build a home for one of these deserving cases? Just £603 builds a comfortable home in which these ladies can end their days . If you would like to donate contact me through this website, if this women can sleep well so will YOU.
A little rest brings a smile
- Hard work is a way of life for this elderly widow
Some times we scream if we find a spider in the sitting room
but in Bondo, Kisumu they found this Black Mamba snake.
These snakes are very poisonous and so you can imagine
how loud the older girls yelled when they saw it. Aren’t you glad we only have spiders???
