  After the birth of their twin babies early in the year during the ethnic violence, they have been camping at Saw mill IDP camp. They hailed form Keringet centre but did not own land or plot.  In Keringet the family lives in rented premises and farmed on leased land.  They are still at the saw mill IDP camp, not sure where to go.

 

 

While it is true ARVs are readily available and free in the government hospital nutrition is a major challenge and concern for the ailing couple and their children.  The family hardly has enough food and nutrition especially for the little children.

Upon hearing the plight of the family, Mr Njoroge galvanized the students, teachers, school workers to donate food and other materials for Felista and family.  The donation which included foodstuffs, clothes, blankets and some money were handed over to Felista and her children in an occasion at Njenga Karume secondary school provided by the school Board of governors Chairman Mr Nyoro and the head teacher Mr Watenga and witnessed by the school fraternity and MISCC officials.
