A fire occurred in the Mathare slum outside of Nairobi, Kenya, on May 8, 2013. The homes of more than 2,000 families living in the slum were damaged or destroyed.

The families of 10 children from Mlango Kubwa Child Development Center (KE-320) were affected. These families sought temporary shelter because their homes were damaged by the fire. These families also lost personal belongings. Compassion Kenya will provide assistance as needed.

Please pray for the community impacted by this fire. Please continue to lift up all of our Compassion-assisted families in Kenya in prayer.
