We are proud to welcome our newest giving partner Compassion CBO. Many of our giving partners work with rural populations, Compassion works in Metropolitan Nairobi and parts of Kenya. I was not aware of the extreme poverty and disease in the slums of Nairobi, and I have been glad to be able to talk to Evanson Njeru, founder of Compassion CBO who has dedicated his life to helping people in these settings.
See below email I received from Evanson and the link to the story of Joy, just one example of many children. This story comes to us from Compassion CBO's partner Safe World For Women, also doing wonderful work in places of great need around the world.
Welcome Sarah a girl like this needs a Pajama and several others she is now 9 years. I have already notified Karen and Marty you will soon get in touch with them. For the last 9 years i have been working with the children in Githogoro slum in Nairobi.
We are working with some members of the Compassion CBO U.S. team to send pajamas to children like Joy early next year.
