Wando Students Serve Vulnerable Women in the Community
Wando International’s community outreach team seeks to share the love of God to the most vulnerable, widows and orphans. We do this by simply making Him known through our actions. We also believe that by teaching our youth these principles we can raise new generations of men and women who seek to serve others and help their communities near and abroad. This is why on a regular basis we take small groups of students from Marah Christian Primary school and go out into the community with the purpose of serving the needs of others.
Our most recent outreach was into the slum community of Njeru where we had the pleasure of visiting Mrs. Manjeri Odur.
Manjeri is an elderly women known for having a great big smile and for always waving hello to those passing by. She can usually be seen tending to her home just outside the gates of our school or rolling paper beads for her jewelry business. She works all day and makes very little money, and has little to no other help. She is considered to be vulnerable because of the temporary housing she is living in as well as not being able to afford the costs of basic necessities like clean water, medical care, and even daily meals.
