APRIL 2019

The children of Cannan Orphanage are settling into their new home, after moving from a run-down property that flooded badly twice each year. Their overall health should improve as a result of lowered malaria risk. The new house also has a piped water supply for washing (drinking water must still be purchased in jerry cans). On the other hand, the rent is greatly increased, highlighting the need for donations.

Get Involved. 

Cannan Orphanage is supported by the efforts of willing volunteers from all over the world. We are always looking for additional help so we can change the lives of Kenyan orphans forever. Please contact us at Cannan.orphanage@yahoo.com for more information.
