Update: May 2020
Edwin, his wife, and adopted family of street children are at this time fighting the corona virus, locusts and floods. He never complains, but, I know he could use some financial assistance right now. If you're so inclined, the donate button is at the bottom of the page.
UPDATE: MARCH 2019
Edwin was in an accident with his motor bike and had to be operated on for an object that forced it's way though his skin and was lodged between his ribs. This required a hospital stay for several days. The money he had saved for seeds and supplies for the garden he grows for his adopted family and street children, had to be used to pay the hospital charge.

The drought in Kenya is taking a toll on it's people and animals. Many are starving. Your donation will assure that the best is done for these children who have no one but Edwin to care for them.
Edwin's Children were Street Children.
"Most of their parents died. They were either living on the street or living with relatives who mistreated, molested and abused them instead of caring for them." Edwin
Founder of Mama Jean Home
"Mama Jean, she was the founder of this home. Her life was devoted to help the need in community. She was from U.S.A. She just past last April." Edwin
Jean Williams was from Albany, NY
Providing a loving home.
Jean and Edwin set up a home for those children who had been abandoned in the street. They fed and clothed them and took them to school. Edwin has been trying to continue the home since Jean passed.
Unfortunately, Edwin broke his foot recently in a motorbike accident and was unable to work for quite awhile.
Edwin can't say no to any child in need even at the expense of his own family. He and his wife were just blessed with a beautiful little daughter.

"Never let go of love. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself......." How did I get through all of that ? " This is a quote from Edwin's facebook page. I can tell you, he has been through a lot, and never does give up or loose faith in God or his fellow beings.
Edwin has a plan! - (October 2016)
