Over 75% of the children are orphaned from HIV/AIDS with the rest being street children, abandoned, or from destitute families that cannot provide them with the proper care necessary for their upbringing, leaving the children destitute were it not for the existence of Shelter. The orphanage provides the children with a home, food, clothing and an education. Privately run, Shelter receives minimal government funding and survives on the support of a few donors and sponsors. The orphanage works to empower the children and help them recognize the reality of a future through education. The only means by which the children can over come their devastating past is through the dreams and hope of a future.
Millionaires Caino Nairobi have been supporting this orphanage for the past 18 months on a monthly basis by providing dearly needed goods which includes cooking oil, maize flour, washing detergent, soap powder, rise, sugar and daily general shelf products. At times we also spoil the younger children with a new toy.
