WELL WISHERS BUILD NEW HOUSE FOR FAMILY OF BOY WHO DIED WITH FORK JEMBE LODGED INTO HIS HEAD

36

After a long and difficult journey, the family of a two year old boy who died while undergoing treatment to remove a fork Jembe that was lodged in his head will be able to get a new house soon.

This is after Kenyans from all walks of life came together to help the family which had lost their loved one and had been living in a shanty house that was not very safe, and they were not able to afford a better one.

In a post on Facebook by a popular Akorino gospel singer Karangu Muraya who has been at the forefront in spearheading this initiative, intimated that the house will hopefully be ready for handover soon as it is currently under construction.

The singer come philanthropist pointed out that they were in need of 60 bags of cement to finalize the house project.

 “See what Jehovah has done to mama Travis….Jehovah may your holy name be Glorified…..friends we are in need of cements 60 bags of cements and each is costing ksh 630 ….please if you are in position to bless this project with a bag, please send your support to (0728242603 Lucy Wambui Kamau, mama Travis sister),”he said.

Earlier on Kenyans rallied behind Mama Travis Maina’s family and raised over 300,000 shillings in less than 24 hours.

The mother of three was thankful after a couple who wanted to elevate a single mother came to her rescue by gifting her plot along Kangundo road.

“A couple wanted to uplift a single mother, and they recommended the deceased boy’s mother, Judy Muthoni. I can now officially announce that mama Travis will own a plot at Kangundo Road where she will build a home for her two boys,” he revealed.

The young Travis was accidentally hit by fork Jembe in the head by his brother while playing at their Thika home. He was referred to Kenyatta National Hospital where he died 24 hours later prompting rage from Kenyans who wanted to know why the Hospital neglected the boy.

This story is a testament to the power of community.
