How did Charity come to be?

Purity Mbocho, founder and president of the organization, is a native of Kenya and knows the situation in Kenya from personal experience. P. Mbocho lived in England for several years, and then moved to Germany with her husband Volker Schaardt and their daughter. They live in Bergish Gladbach. The wish to try and do something to help the children of her homeland grew with time. P. Mbocho and her husband founded the organization in the summer of 2004 and quickly found support. The members of the board of directors include Dr. Herbert Breker and legal counselor Sabine Hohn. &Mac226;I am exstatic that we have received so much support to help the children in Kenya. I wish I could offer all these people the chance to see the joy in the childrens‘ eyes. We see this all the time when we are in Kenya. This would be a token of our thanks.‘ P. Mbocho.

Help in Germany

In Germany we want to help, too.

With a view on the poorest people in Africa , also the problems in our rich country became visible. There is help, coming from the lows of the government. But for that many (too many) cancer suffered children, this help can only be limited. Not comparable to Africa.

That is why we decided to help also in Germany only one year after foundation. From this moment we brought help, where it is needed mostly.

This is our aim, we want to reach with honorary helpers, within the posibilites, given by the important donations.
