MINISTRY IN KENYA
MISSION TO KENYA'S 'KIDS ALIVE' KURUNDAS
We Support several Charities overseas including 'Kids Alive', where we have sent short term missions teams to Kenya to serve at the Kids alive orphanages and care centres. See below for examples
Last October some of the members of Ridgeway started a knitting club. They get together once a week and knit Jerseys for the children in Karundas [Karundas is located at a high altitude and can get quite cold!].
Regular batches of clothes now find their way to the African Continent.
Below are photos of the last teams from Ridgeway who visited the orphanage at Kurundas to help out at the is
The Children were a joy to be with.
Photos above show a school outing (left) and the parachute game (right) which we introduced to them
The complex has a medical centre which serves not only the Children but the local community. Ridgeway has fundraised for medical equipment (above left) and for an incinerator to be built (above right). It is great to see the practical tangible results from the finance raised.
We also had the opportunity to visit homes in the local community
We are firmly committed to continuing to support this work as a church.
