Our minister, Rev. Helen Kirk, with ten others are experiencing at first hand the slums of Kenya and the work there of Karibuni Children. They have been spending time working alongside local people and carers in some of the charity's projects. They have also been in the classrooms with children and teachers and visited some of the children's simple homes.
