LiveKind Kibera Case Studies
These case studies provide a snapshot of the help that we have been able to provide to the community since our Angel Officers started work on 3rd August 2015.
- Case 1 - A young boy was being beaten daily and starved. He asked for our help. We worked with the Children's Office to ensure the necessary permissions and found a place for him to live in a safe house. Our donors have also provided clothes.
- Case 2 - A young teenage girl was raped and needed urgent medical attention and support. Our team took her and stayed with her at hospital, gave her food to help her with her medication and found her a place at a safe house. We are also supporting her with legal help.
- Case 3 - A lady has been undergoing severe domestic violence which is very regular (almost daily). We helped her to receive medical attention and provided her with safe house options.
- Case 4 - A 15 year old girl was raped whilst doing errands for her family. Our team took her to hospital and ensured that she received immediate and on-going medical treatment. We are also supporting with legal help.
- Case 5 - We were alerted by a school to the case of severe neglect and hunger of a very young boy. We worked with the D.C.O and have managed to obtain a place for the child at a safe house.
- Case 6 - A lady was violently attacked with a machete. We took the lady to hospital where she received treatment. We are also helping the police enquiry.
- Case 7 - Two children had been regularly assaulted by their neighbour. We helped with emergency medical treatment after the latest attack whereby an attempt was made to strangle a child. We are supporting the ongoing enquiry.
- Case 8 - A husband was withholding children, including a breastfeeding baby, from their mother. We helped in the process of reuniting the children with their mother.
