Verkaart Trust is an orphanage for 40 boys just outside of Mombasa. Because the orphanage is not in the city they do not benefit from ACT which puts their most talented boys at a disadvantage as the public school system is severely lacking.
This is the only facility that takes albino children who are badly discriminated against in Kenyan society. Many of these albino boys suffer from skin and eye issues and some of them require substantial dental care.
The home is in very bad need of repair. School fees and medical care for the children are an ongoing issue and the project clearly requires regular funding.
Kind Gestures donation has helped repair the home’s kitchen that burnt down and has also put the plumbing and electricals back in order.
