St. Clair’s Orphanage

Our final rotation just happened and now Robin is now here in Kisumu spending time at St. Clair’s orphanage and will be visiting the kids at St. Francis for the first time this weekend. It was great reading storeybooks to the kids this morning and having them participate with the words and songs that they know, as well, reciting poems and demonstrating their “good manners”. We spent much of the morning with the babies at the orphanage who are under the age of 1 year old, Francisca (also known as piglet) who loves her head to be rubbed, Moses a very active vocal baby now that he is over his cold, Paul who is wide-eyed and at the same time a very old soul, and finally the oldest of the group Magdaline who has a very strong personality and preferences for someone so young. There are also many other kids at the orphanage that we have also gotten to know quite well and enjoy spending time with them, in particular are Imam, Marilyn, Helen, Jacob, Junior, Tracy, Paul, Victor among so many others. Our days in Kisumu have found a great rhythm where we are able to rest after spending time at the orphanage before venturing out into town to meet the many new Kenyan friends we have made or run errands. Overall the entire group so far has felt incredible warmth of Kenyan hospitality and are amazed that so many people not only take the time to say hi and notice us but to express care when we have been under the weather from the sun, food, or our days. Cheers to Kenya.
