KidsCare wants to be effective in doing homecare in Sub County LungaLunga. By that reason KidsCare had chosen for a central approach with her KidsCare service centre combined with an decentral approach – close to the households – in her KidsCare outreaches.
Welcome in our Service Center
On October 2013 the KidsCare service centre was opened by the governor of Kwale County, Salim M. Wvurya. The service centre consisted of several buildings: offices for the staff, a big conference hall and a full operating kitchen. In 2014 the construction was completed with a guesthouse (10 rooms), a meeting- and a training room. Since 2016 also a complete therapy room for children with special abilities became in use.
The KidsCare Centre is fulfilling the following functions:
Welcome in our outreaches
Help, care and support for children and youngsters in poor and needy circumstances should be provided as close as possible to their homes. This basic principle is especially important for the rural areas in the Sub County LungaLunga. KidsCare found a solution for that by starting outreaches in all six Locations. All outreaches consist of small offices in which our social worker can meet caretakers and their children. The offices are made available and very close to the Location Chief. A fruitful cooperation between the social worker, the Chief and other relevant stakeholders in the location makes it possible that many children are helped in the outreaches.
