A  Non-Governmental Organisation, Nucleus Children’s Trust (NCT), has given shoes worth Sh.2.4 million to 12,340 orphans in Lugari Sub County to prevent environmental related diseases.

The NGO had last month also paid school fees for some 141 orphans and also constructed houses for 38 of people taking care of the children in the sub county.

According to the Director of  NCT, John Kariuki, more houses would be put up for care givers living under deplorable conditions.

Kariuki  who  was  speaking at his Kaburengu office after distributing the shoes regretted that the affected care givers lived in structures with leaking roofs.

He expressed fear that this could impact negatively on the orphans they were taking care of “and even affect their performance in school.”

The Director thanked the United States Agency for Development (USAID) for its support to the NGO.

He noted that education of many orphans in colleges and universities had been made possible by monetary support from the American agency.

Kariuki appealed to all those given money to fend for the orphans and the vulnerable children, warning that legal action may soon be taken against those embezzling the funds.
