Inauguration of the 2nd MMH Center in Western Kenya

Impressions – inauguration 2nd MMH center in Langas slum, Kenya

Two days back we inaugurated our 2nd Making More Health House in Western Kenya, this time in Eldoret in the Langas slum. The inauguration started with a procession throughout the slum, with a lot of singing and dancing.

At the MMH Solasa center some women gave us a nice first welcome, followed by many representations , dances and theatre plays by the women and girls who are trained by Solasa

Also the county assembly representative and the governmental health workers of Langas slums joined and welcomed all MMH partners and people with albinism who had come from our first MMH GAASPP house in Webuye. Elisabeth, wo lead the Solasa NGO and who will lead also the MMH house gave a very nice speech.

The inauguration itself was a very emotional moment

When Elizabeth and myself had finally cut the inauguration banner, she and all teachers of Solasa organized a tour inside the building and demonstrated also a very nice kitchen garten and the children garten.

A final dance with the teachers made this day a perfect one.

Just a few remarks

This house was completely sponsored by donations from colleagues as well as private donations from colleagues’ money. Many thanks to everyone who made this possible !!!

There is still a lot to do and a few more donations could help a lot. We have no shelves and little furniture, some missing ceilings on the upper floor still have to be attached, the toilets still have to be tiled and there is a lack of kitchen tools and materials for the teachers, but the house is there and the many training courses for girls and women can now be done here. We are all looking forward to it.

If you want to donate for kitchen tools, finishing of furnishing and ceilings, just contact. The donations can be deducted from taxes. (In Germany)
