Feeding the Street Children of Mombasa

On Sunday 14th May 2017, Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari held an activity organized by Lion Kamal, the Service Activities Convenor. This was feeding street children at their base called "maboxini". This was planned to coincide with Mothers Day as mothers no matter what the circumstances will never leave their children to go hungry.

Mothers from the Sikh temple volunteered to cook the delicious food.

130 street children were treated to rice, spicy beans, together with a sweet dish of vermicelli noodles mixed with raisins plus a bottle each of drinking water. The food was served by none other than the three mothers present being members of the club, 3 male Lion members of the club , a guest and a cub who empathized with the children and knew it is a blessing to be privileged. Total cost of the activity was Kshs14,500/-

Though the exercise was tedious, it was worth it as you could see smiles of gratitude on the children's faces to get at least one delicious meal that day, as they knew someone somewhere cares for them... yes: “ here there is a need there is a Lion”
