Pastor Patrick Kimawachi


  

The Kibera Slum Ministries is an idea whose time has come. It began as a vision in 1989 when Pastor Patrick Kimawachi, graduated in a Bible College in Kenya felt God directing him to a new and wider form of ministry.

 

We are guided by the vision of rescuing children at risk and giving them a better childhood and future hope by protecting, guiding and healing them.
 
KSM services and initiatives are aimed at:
Providing care through our homes for children in the slums who are abused, abandoned, neglected, misdirected, at-risk or caught up in family turmoil or whose parents cannot care for them.
 
KSM Mission Statement
"To rescue and protect disadvantaged children in Kibera Slum and to give them a better childhood experience and a future hope.

 

Kibera is one of the worlds biggest and poorest slums, suffering from gross over-population and periodic outbreak of diseases with enormous loss of life. There seems little hope that the poverty will be substantially alleviated. Life is very difficult in the Kibera slums. Walking through into the depths of the slum is a pathetic adventure of shock. The children live in the midst of a desperate situation that defies description.

What they face everyday in the slums

Diseases from garbage and murky waters, Family Conflicts, Abuse and defilement, Abandonment, Lack of basic needs such as:  Education, Shelter, Food, medication etc.

With KSM rescue mission, everything changes for a child who is sponsored and can go to school, Sunday School and church, where the children are loved, taught and fed.

Under Gospel Believers Fellowship, God led to establish Kibera Slum Ministries with its distinction of helping children who are abused, abandoned, neglected, misdirected, at-risk or caught up in family turmoil or whose parents cannot care for them because of death, separation, illness or some other reason.
 

We have two homes with 104 children, Kibera (49) and Kitale (55).

Our Mission

  • To rescue and protect children from the trauma of physical and sexual abuse, extreme neglect, being abandoned and being victims or witnesses of domestic violence.

  • To help the children overcome their initial trauma and restore self-esteem by giving them unconditional love, care, and education.
