A Bit About Wilshere!

Wilshere, a 10-year-old boy from Kisumu, Kenya, lives with his mother, father, and 6 siblings. His parents work at a rice farm and are the providers for their family. Wilshere helps out at home by looking after the cattle and he loves the color green! Wilshere has been waiting for a sponsor for a long time. While waiting, he has spent significant time in his Bible and particularly loves Psalm 12:1-7 and the story of Paul.

Wilshere enjoys many things during his time at the Ministry CarePoint like, playing football, reading, studying his Bible, eating rice with beans, and playing with his friends. He aspires to become a carpenter to make beautiful furniture one day.

By sponsoring a child like Wilshere, you can continue encouraging him in the Gospel and caring for him like Jesus!

A Bit About Kisumu, Kenya!

Kenya is located in East Africa and is a very diverse place. It touches the Indian Ocean and is mostly desert and mountainous.

Maimuna lives in Kisumu, Kenya, the third largest city in Kenya. The temperature is anywhere from the low 60s to high 80s and they experience both a dry and a wet season. The homes in Kisumu, Kenya are usually made of mud and corrugated metal sheets and the terrain is typically very rocky and dry. The children within our Kenyan CarePoints rarely have electricity or running water in their homes, so they have lots of long walks in all types of weather to the nearest well or other water source.
