Baby Mugo Born in Kwambekenya!

In 2007 the number one priority for the community of Kwambekenya was a medical clinic.  The nearest hospital is ten kilometers (a little over 6 miles) away, and public transportation is limited, unreliable and unsafe.  The community told us stories of how children were being born on the side of the road because the mothers didn’t make it all the way to the hospital.

The Kwambekenya medical clinic officially opened in July, 2009 and the first baby was born at the clinic this week.  Mary is the daughter of Jecinta and David Mugo.  She weighed about 5lbs at birth and we understand that both mom and baby are doing well.

As many of you know, little Mary’s father – David – was The 410 Bridge Community Representative for Kwambekenya and Karima before he was tragically killed in a matatu accident in March.  David played a major role in establishing the medical clinic and we thank God that his daughter was the first baby born in the facility.

One Day At Church

One day at church I felt a calling or a nudge that God wanted me to serve in a different way. I looked through my church’s opportunities and as soon as I saw Kenya I felt a wash of joy flood over me. I applied that day and was overjoyed to hear shortly back that I had been accepted to go. Our church gave us the book “If You Really Want To Help” and from there I fell in love with what 410 was doing for the people of Kenya, especially after reading the story of Chris in Kahuria.

Learnings From Kiu, Kenya

Our partnership with Kiu community started way back in 2009 making it one of the first communities to partner with the 410 Bridge since its inception in Kenya in 2006. 

At the 410 Bridge, we work through the community leaders who ensure continuity of the community’s development even after graduation. During our partnership journey, we walk alongside indigenous community leaders and church leaders as they mobilize and unify the community to participate in their own development – shifting their perspectives and owning the solutions.
