It was all smiles as Purity left the hospital bed where she has spent 8 months. Purity was hit by a train on 30th December 2014. The accident resulted in the amputation of both her legs and left arm.

Purity’s story is one of resilience amidst life’s greatest challenges. Even though Purity has been mentally handicapped since birth, her mother, a single parent, has never abandoned her in all the challenges that came as a result of being mentally handicapped. As if that was not enough for this single mother living in the heart of Kibera, this most recent tragedy has struck.

 Through the very generous support from Anthony Ryan and Louise Allison, Purity’s mother has been able to support her other two children, while staying with Purity next to her hospital bed for the last 8 months. Anthony and Louise are angels sent by God to mama

Purity. Through them, she knows that God has not abandoned her. She wishes to express her deep gratitude to them and to the Gone Fishin’ group that visited her in the Hospital. We look forward to welcoming Purity back to School when school re-opens next month.
