A brighter future for Kenyan kids
Muhidin and Abdisalan are two of 2,300 children living at the Alnajah Children’s Home in Garissa, Kenya. Islamic Relief is improving the living and education standards of the Home, helping pupils achieve their dreams.
“My greetings to all children,” says Muhidin Mohamed, 13. “I urge all of you to study hard so that you can achieve your dreams.” Muhidin lives at the Alnajah Children’s Home in Garissa, Kenya. Losing his father at the age of three, Muhidin had to leave the family home when his mother and her second husband simply could not afford to provide for all their children – he is the eldest of six. The Children’s Home is not just a safe place to live, but provides an education as well. “I will study hard and ensure I get a good paying job. I want to help my siblings and family have a better life,” says Muhidin’s fellow pupil, Abdisalan Omar. 15-year-old Abdisalan also joined the Children’s Home when his widowed mother struggled to provide for him and his siblings.
