Rabbit Project

Posted by on Apr 15, 2015 in Weekly Update | 0 comments

Last week was a very exciting week here at LPK!  Five women received Rabbits as part of the Rabbit Project that we continually run here at LPK.
This project provides each women with a pregnant rabbit, a Hutch, and a day of training so the women are well educated in what to expect and how to care for their new rabbits!  Once their rabbits have their own kits, they will then provide rabbits for another group of women.  This is a fantastic project in that it provides both a source of income and also a wonderful source of nutrition.  The women have now taken their new furry friends home and begun to care for them!

Sophia Needs Your Help

Posted by on Sep 26, 2014 in Weekly Update | 0 comments

Our last update on Sophia was in May 2013 when she was doing well after her chemotherapy treatments. Unfortunately, after our last update, Sophia’s health has continued to be concern and is at a point where she desperately needs surgery again. In May 2014, another lump was discovered in her right thigh. Mallorie, a previous LPK volunteer, raised 30,000ksh for Sophia’s surgery on July 9, 2014. We had hoped that the doctors would be able to remove the entire lump during surgery but over the past few months her leg has been growing bigger and bigger every day. After seeing the doctor again, they determined the lump is still there and is cancerous. Sophia has already been through 5 tests which LPK has paid for but the doctors are requesting more before her surgery, which will cost around 300,000ksh. When talking to Sophia, you can see she is in a lot of pain. Her leg is now swollen from her hip down to her toes and she can no longer bend her leg. After surgery, there is a strong possibility she will also need follow up treatments which may include more chemotherapy but we won’t know what is required and how much those additional costs will be until after her surgery. Sophia is looking to us and counting on us to help her raise the money so she can get well. Please help us support Sophia during this time and become part of LPK history by contributing to the largest amount of money ever raised for one individual case by making a donation today.

Please help Fridah!

Posted by on Apr 11, 2014 in Weekly Update | 0 comments











Fridah tested HIV positive in 2006 but was in denial until a couple years later when she had a baby girl who didn’t survive birth. When she eventually disclosed this information to her family and husband she ended being completely rejected. Her real father’s response was that the family had nowhere to bury a HIV+ person and her husband left her alone with the children and no support.

In 2012, Fridah became extremely ill suffering from tuberculosis and was bed ridden for a year .Without the support of her family, her sons survived on rotten food from the garbage. Paralyzed from the legs down due to a reaction with her tuberculosis medication, Fridah was unable to walk – she remembers feeling that if she had the strength to do it, she would have dumped herself in a latrine to die.

Living Positive Kenya was able to come to her rescue by enrolling Fridah into the WEEP class, the Global Youth 2012 supported her to move into a better house, and HEART made a frequent visit for prayers, food donation and financial support.

Coming from a place of depression and suicidal thoughts, her health has gradually improved since joining the WEEP class. Fridah was to graduate from WEEP in the year 2013 but she was left behind because she was not strong enough after her long illness.

Although her legs are still not completely stable she is so determined to get to class that she walks 1.5km to do so. She is an amazing woman full of determination, faith and hard work.

In the last couple of weeks doctors discovered that her brain is swollen, her kidneys and liver have problems. She desperately he needs tests and scans which will cost approximately Kshs.20,000 (USD235)

The first very urgent matter is to get the tests done as soon as possible.

Secondly she will need treatment after these tests has been completed as we do not know what this will be we cannot say what the cost will be but is likely to be in the Kshs 10.000’s  but we will keep you updated about this.

However, if she doesn’t get this help quickly then Fridah has been told that she might lose her sight.

We ask all of our friends and family to help us raise the money for her tests, scans and treatment. Please help us to share Fridah’s story and to help this amazing woman to complete her WEEP class this year.
