As all people have a right to life, so are our children in Talitha Kum. There is always a reason to celebrate the gift of life. Every year Talitha Kum provides an opportunity for the community to come and celebrate life with the children which is a very precious moment.
On 6th of July 2013 the Home held its 5th Talitha Kum Open Day guided by the theme “You are my Hope”. This was reached to by the great effort of the community manifested through their goodwill. The community has stood by the Home since its inception. In the beginning the children were so desperate, hopeless and had no one to offer them a shoulder to lean on but the day brought fourth the reality of the Hope the community has put in the life of the children.
The day was marked with lots of activities beginning with the procession at Narenaro Primary school where we had prayers led by Rev. Muhia of PCEA church, the flagging off by DCO Mwangi of Laikipia West and the procession led by the Brigade from the PCEA church.
The celebration was well attended by many people from different publics: Schools, Churches, Individuals, Business community, cooperates etc. After the processions it was followed by the celebration of the Holy Mass conducted Fr. James Nduati, Fr. Mariano and Fr. Fredrick Gitau. Other leaders from different churches also attended the celebration and took part in the liturgy of the day which was a great witness of Ecumenism.
