First Home Complete.

18 months after the first children came to live at the Open Arms Village, and got new families, new hope and a new future, they are now getting a brand new home to live in.

The 16-strong family of Daniel and Lydia Yego moved into their new home this week, and will soon be followed by the family of Peter and Stella Kimelli, who will move into the ‘house next-door’.

This move is the culmination of a lot of hard work and amazing generosity by Open Arms volunteers and supporters, for which no amount of thanks can be enough.  Three more homes are also under construction and will be ready for habitation in 2010. Open Arms staff are currently conducting interviews to find the new house-parents that will head up those homes and allow us to give a new life to more orphans and abandoned children.
