Katangi Orphans


What we do in Katangi

Your wonderful contributions to support the AIDS orphans in Katangi, Kenya have over the past years helped give over 200 children a start in life that would otherwise have been impossible for them. Having lost both parents, these children, some very young, would have been left with no support, but your generosity provides a lifeline in the form of food, clothing, shelter, an education and hope. We have a tiny voluntary team in Katangi who deliver that support, and funding comes through regular standing orders, donations, fundraising and the K49er weekly draw.

If you would like to more information, please email Katangi.stj@gmail.com or speak to a member of the Katangi team,
