Story & Mission
Since 1985 the Wamba Catholic Hospital, with the support of the Huruma Sisters from India built The Huruma Home,
a special space for the mentally and physically challenged children, who wouldn’t survive in the bush.
For the Samburu people having a disabled child is a curse. The children are taken to the Huruma Home and once admitted they are forever abandoned there, with no visits and no financial support.
The Home counts 40 children and adults, the older person is a lady of 39 years-old, the young just a few months.
There are currently 3 Huruma Sisters and 8 Samburu ladies who are caring for these children and adults.
The Calleri ECDC welcome these children in class in order to entertain them and sensitise the rest of the school to play and share school seats with different children.
In 2019 we were able to donate a new washing machine to the Huruma Home, as the washing was done all by hand.
