    “Before LECDEN-KENYA came to my rescue, the better part of my life has been filled with sorrow and difficulties since my husband died from HIV/AIDS in the year 2002. LECDEN-KENYA brought relief to my life and that of my two kids after they gave me some money to start a micro-enterprise in 2006” – Patricia Ambatsa –Kibera Widow

    because I had a tumor but because of the stigma I went through from my peers in school. I had suffered from a jaw tumor from a tender age of 5 years and I had to drop from school. Thanks to LECDEN-KENYA I am now able to go to school and mix with the other kids freely” – Jackson Abujeka – Orphan, Kiambiu
