On the 16th of January we hosted a very successful and well attended Disability Awareness Day at Gede Special School. Dignitaries from all over Kilifi County attended as well as friends and supporters from ”Kupenda for the Children” from America.
There were speeches, entertainment and singing. Children, parents and teachers marched through town with banners to remind everyone that there are people with disabilities living aming them and that they deserve respect, recognition and support. The three young people; Mercyline, Hassan and Fumo, who climbed Mount Kilimanjaro were also celebrated. They received their trophies and each of them gave a speech, sharing their experience with everyone present.
The day ended with a Service in honour of the late father of Cynthia Bauer (one of the co founders of Kuhenza for the Children)
