Let's visit children's homes today

By Veronica Onjoro | December 25th 2015

Every county should have a children’s home so as to reduce the number of children roaming our streets.

In the late 70s and 80s, we had leaders who were mindful of children’s welfare and started homes for the destitute. Some of them, like Mama Ngina and Mama Fatuma children’s homes, are still catering for very many destitute children.

This is a good way to rescue destitute children and mentor them to become the leaders of tomorrow.

However, most of our leaders don’t have a vision for the less fortunate. They care more about foreign trips than the problems of the poor in our society.

During this festive season, let Kenyans and our leaders visit children’s homes and donate food, clothes, shoes, books, uniform and other necessities to ease the burden of those taking care of destitute children.

Let us cultivate good virtues in our society and our leaders should lead by example.
