Busia (Kenya)

On the border with Uganda, Mama Orphans cares for 116 street children and sends them to school. Some of the children are as young as one year old. Her family, with the help of a few neighbours   sold all their possessions to pay for the food for the chidren. But due to a lack of funds for regular meals the state of the children was becoming alarming, in spite of this the police and local people continued to bring in abandoned children. SaS/SidEcole now mainly provides funds for food.
