Saving Little Namoi - Lamu Island, Kenya

Brad Senekal – Outreach Coordinator
JMM South Africa Office

On the small isolated island of Lamu in Kenya, little Namoi has had a tough start in life. She lost her mom to Tuberculosis soon after being born and her father was too sickly and poor in his old age to care for her. At 7 months old, frail, ill and extremely malnourished, Namoi joined our children’s project. Through the faithful giving of our partners she has received daily meals, basic education and most importantly both experiences and hears daily of the love of Christ! Almost 2 years later and Namoi is healthy, well-fed and content. Despite being raised on an island rife with poverty, and that is 99% Muslim, she will grow up knowing Jesus is her provider, that she is beautiful and loved.

We thank God that through the support of partners and friends we are able to change the destiny of precious children like Namoi. With that support we are also restoring a well and building a HOPE CENTRE which will serve as a school, care centre and a church in Lamu. Thanks to Nairobi Lighthouse Church and all our partners and friends who continue to give to make this possible!

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
