The house is made of mud and thatch, and it leaks when it rains.
The children have no decent clothes or shoes, and they often go to school hungry.
Omwando’s husband died several years ago, and she has been struggling to raise her children on her own.
She is a single mother, and she works as a casual laborer. She earns very little money, and she cannot afford to provide for her children’s basic needs.
The story of Omwando and her children was featured on Minto FM, a local radio station.

He has also bought food and other supplies for the family, and he has provided iron sheets for the construction of a new house.
“I am very grateful to Hon. Arama for sponsoring my children’s education. It has been very difficult for me to raise them on my own since my husband died,” said Omwando.
Arama said that he was moved by Omwando’s story and that he felt compelled to help her.
He said that he plans to sponsor more children from Nyamira County in the future.
