Welcome to Jombas Childrens Home
Jombas Children's Home project was started out of need to support vulnerable and orphaned kids of Malindi by two Priests: Late Rev Fr. Andrew Mwaura OFM Capuchin and Rev. Fr Michael Babu currently the Parish Priest, St Francis Catholic Church Baharini, Malindi Diocese in Kenya. After ordination 2007 Fr Michael was appointed Malindi Cathedral curate where he worked with the needy and HIV support groups. He experienced the pain of watching members die and leave kids behind, as well as extreme poverty experienced by these kids In consultation and collaborations with Fr. Andrew, they initially rented a shelter belonging to Mrs Wairimu Njoroge at Kijiwetanga, 4kms from Malindi, where the first 15 kids were welcomed. This marked the beginning of Jombas Children’s with a mission “every child, every opportunity”. The goal was to end the cycle of poverty by providing basic necessities to children such as education, healthcare and food.
