PRO LABORE DEI KENYA

 

 

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

- Blessed Mother Teresa

 

 

Pro Labore Dei Kenya was founded on June 24th, 2010 under the oversight of the first Missionary to Kenya, Elizabeth Chinelo. Coming alone from her home country where she was sent from, she, as she says, relied on the Holy Spirit to enable her accomplish the task given to her. She continues to narrate how she was led and met a complete stranger who helped her through the initial registration process and how, by the grace of God, the process took a record short time. All this, in summary of a long tale best told by Chinelo herself, says so much about there being a pre-planned purpose by God to have PLD working in Kenya.

 

      

 

It did not take long as the unrelenting missionary, now joined by several volunteers, to hit the road and start feeding beggars on the streets of Nairobi. For those of us who know a bit about Nairobi, we know that it takes more than courage to face, let alone feed, the rugged looking street families in Kenya, it takes a passion to touch their lives. That passion is what always exuded from Chinelo and was slowly being imparted in the volunteers.

 

Soon, she had to leave but the team she left led by Michael, another missionary, was up to the task. In no time, they had identified a slum (Lunga lunga) in the eastern parts of the capital city of Kenya, Nairobi and were moving from house to house identifying and fishing out clients. Within days, they had also spotted a good location and set up what is now known as “Pro Labore Dei Community School” within the slum in addition to the continuing

feeding and home visitation programmes in another slum (Mathari) within Nairobi town.

 

 

    

Reaching out to the poorest of the poor in the slum areas was slowly becoming the main concentration of PLD Kenya with other programmes such as clothing and treatment sprouting within the feeding programme.

 

Within a year, the school was registered and was admitting pupils from poor families in their hundreds and feeding street beggars in the same numbers. The general public was slowly noticing the volunteer members moving from one place to another and gaining interest in the work of PLD.

                      

Michael soon left and the indigenes were given the task of continuing with the work and before long, they were exhibiting what was imparted on them by the missionaries. Admissions in the school soared and within the second year, the school was already admitting pupils in class four and five, the treatment unit was almost overburdened by the cases it was handling and the feeding unit had gotten its rhythm and was constantly feeding the street beggars.

 

Currently PLD Kenya humbly takes pride and thanks God for his grace in having over 200 registered pupils up to standard seven and within the next year, we will be having our first candidates sitting for the national examinations in standard eight. We also take pride in the feeding unit which is currently feeding up to fifty street clients per day and the treatment unit which currently takes care of patients with diseases varying from sugar diabetes to HIV/AIDS among others.

 

We have established a children’s centre where we take care of orphan children and children from poor families ensuring they get to their full potential by providing them with basic care and education.

 

PLD Kenya is also taking care of home clients and provides them with food portions each month as well as supporting them as need may arise. The clothing unit is still working to clothe the naked.

 

Since inception we members of PLD Kenya are proud that the spirit and call of our founder Rev. Sister Stella Maris Nkechi imparted by the missionaries and our ever on hand international link, Sister Teresa,  has never faded within our hearts and the desire to reach out to the poor is still growing in us. As the blessed Mother Teresa once said, “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”

 

We would encourage all and sundry in Kenya and around the world to join with the Kenyans as we touch one more life in the Kenyan slums, educate one more pupil, adopt one more orphan, treat one more client, feed one more street beggar, and visit one more home client. We are certain that the lives we are touching are the present and future of the nation of Kenya and the world and that is why we never stand down. We always watch out for them, giving our best and sacrificing that which we can to ensure it is well with them.

 

As Christ said it, the needy shall always be with us. Thus we are always preparing for that one other client that we will knock on his/her door or will find on the street. We therefore urge you to support us and our cause with your donations, monetary and in kind (clothing, dry foods, cooking oil, and school stationery) and also join us in doing this noble work.

 

Together we shall echo our commitment and that of the PLD world wide family in word and in deed, “WE SHALL SERVE”
