A New House in Kenya…Built on Love

Field Report by Operation Blessing

KENYA – For Lydia and her family in rural Kenya, the sound of rain was once a source of dread rather than comfort. Their rundown hut, riddled with cracks and holes, offered little protection from the elements. As the rainwater seeped in, so did the cold, making it nearly impossible to sleep. Lydia’s heart ached witnessing her children endure these miserable conditions, but as a day laborer struggling to make ends meet, she felt powerless to change their circumstances.

A Glimmer of Hope Amidst Hardship

Lydia’s youngest children attended a school that was being run by Operation Blessing, a humanitarian organization dedicated to alleviating poverty worldwide. When the charity’s representatives learned of the family’s plight, they knew they had to take action. Thanks to the generosity of compassionate donors like you, Operation Blessing embarked on a journey to build the family a new home in Kenya – a sanctuary where they could finally find peace and comfort.

A Sanctuary of Joy: A New House in Kenya

As the construction team diligently worked, Lydia and her children could scarcely believe their eyes. Brick by brick, their dream of a safe, sturdy new house in Kenya was becoming a reality. The new house featured a separate kitchen area, protecting the family from the hazardous smoke that once filled their living quarters. Solar lights illuminated the rooms, banishing the darkness that had engulfed their lives for far too long.

“We never dreamed this would happen to us,” Lydia exclaimed, her voice trembling with joy. “It brings me such happiness to no longer worry about a leaking roof when it rains. We are protected from the wind and cold.”

The new kitchen, a dedicated space for cooking and gathering, filled Lydia with immense gratitude. “I am so happy with our new kitchen,” she beamed. “We no longer cook and sleep in the same place, so we don’t suffer from the smoke from the fireplace.”

For the first time, Lydia and her children had their separate bedrooms where they could rest peacefully. “I sleep so well now,” Lydia shared, her eyes shining with hope for the future.
