Eye treatment for 5 Children at JEHO – Need Met!

We extend our heartfelt appreciation for your unwavering support in enhancing the eye health of the children at the John E. Halgrim Orphanage (JEHO) in Nairobi, Kenya. The impact of your generosity is already evident, with five children now equipped with the eye medicine/prescription glasses they need to see their bright futures that lie ahead more clearly.


Please see the images (pictured right & left), offering a glimpse of the direct impact your support has had on these young lives. Emmanuel George, Shaniz, Destiny, Lisa, and Sheldon underwent thorough eye examinations, thanks to your contributions.

The costs for each child’s essential vision needs amounted to approximately 6,350 Kenyan Shillings (KES), equivalent to $278 in US dollars. It is remarkable how far the American dollar goes in Kenya – we often don’t realize how much of a difference a small sum can make. Your contributions have proven to be remarkably efficient, showcasing the profound impact even a modest sum can have on transforming the lives of these children.

The efforts of Pastor Miriam in locating a local optometrist in Nairobi played a pivotal role in ensuring these children not only received thorough vision exams but also obtained their necessary glasses and medicine. It’s heartening to report that, with their newfound clarity of vision, these five children can now perceive the beauty of God’s world more vividly. The speed and willingness with which our supporters rallied to meet this crucial need have not gone unnoticed, and we express our immense gratitude for your ongoing dedication.


Looking ahead, we emphasize the continued importance of supporting the medical expenses of our children. Your contributions to our Children’s Medical Expenses campaign play a crucial role in ensuring these young lives receive the quality healthcare they deserve, thus changing their destinies by providing a higher standard of care.

Additionally, if you are interested in partnering with Pastor Miriam to become a sponsor for the JEHO Safe Home, we invite you to learn more about this impactful role here.

Once again, we extend our deepest thanks to the Haven of Hope Family for your compassion and generosity. May your kindness continue to be a beacon of hope for the least of these.
