|A Big Thanks from our family to yours!|
Warm greetings from Ndalani!
Last month, Kenyan media exploded with a disturbing story: “Close to 4,000 school girls impregnated in Kenya during COVID-19 lockdown," read one headline. “Alarm as 3,964 girls impregnated in Machakos County [where MCF is located], in five months”, read another. This is our reality at Mully Children’s Family. We are bombarded with hundreds of requests to rescue children in vulnerable situations.
Thanks to your love, generosity, and sacrifice, every dollar given is facilitating remarkable change in the lives of children and community members living on the margins.
|Alice is fourteen years old. Charles rescued her from the streets of Emali, a transit town located along the very busy Nairobi-Mombasa highway. She was living on the streets for several months. As the fifth born in a family of eight children who were under the care of a poor widowed mother, Alice ran to the streets to fend for herself.
She was in conflict with the law in the streets while she also risked her life, facing dangers of sexual abuse, teenage pregnancy, disease and death. She was a statistic.
Today, Alice feels safe and protected. She is proud to belong to the biggest family in the world where she has access to all her basic needs and is protected from the effects of the ongoing pandemic.
We continue to rescue at-risk boys and girls, like Alice and others, who join our family. Our joy is in giving hope to the hopeless and sharing the little we have for God’s glory! We remain thankful for all you do. You have been our companion on this journey.
Thank you, once again, for your commitment to these children who need your support. We are so grateful.
Be truly blessed,
Dr. Charles & Esther Mulli

The wedding had been scheduled for the month of April before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With infections soaring, restrictions in movement and counties locked down, the wedding was halted indefinitely.
However, in the midst of national curfews and lockdowns, a window of opportunity arose with a temporary uplift of movement in certain areas.
We only had nine days during which to plan for the wedding! We were only permitted to host 15 guests in addition to our biological family.
We thank God and rejoice as the wedding was a great success, and indeed a time of celebration and thanksgiving!
Kindly join us in congratulating the newlyweds, Kennedy and
Ndondo Mutisya! Please remember them in your prayers as they start their new home.
