Finding Hope Home. The children of Nairobi

In 1996, Pastor Lucy and her husband Duncan Ndegwa went to Nairobi, Kenya, and began to feed the children who lived on the streets. 

They became friends with the children and started to let them visit their home. They eventually allowed the children to stay at their home and then started the orphanage, "Gathiga Children's Hope Home" also known as "Tuwape Tumaini Children's Foundation".
