First of all, let me welcome all visitors to our web site which is dedicated to our supporters in the work of "Helping the poor and disadvantaged living in the rural and slum areas of Kenya and USA inner cities".
As the founder of KENYA/USA CHRISTIAN RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT, INC., I would like to express my deep appreciation to all those whose generosity and kindness sustains and nurtures our work of improving the lot of many in Kenya.
I want you to know that, your generocity has touched the lives of many people and brought smiles and hope to those in despair; especially in the Communities of Kilungu, Kituiuni and Kyale areas of Kenya where currently several programs are simultaneously underway, thanks to the benevolence of donors, and well-wishers like you.
However, the need remains exponentially high and, I urge new supporters to come forth and partner with us in the struggle to bring about social change. Our existing donors continue with the noble efforts of bringing relief to the suffering and improving the quality of life for the poor, in Africa and in the USA.
May the Lord bless you all.
Simon Kimatu Maweu.
The Mission of KENYA/USA CHRISTIAN RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT, INC. is to strive and help those who are struggling to shuffle-off the yokes of hunger, ignorance, and disease. Our Mission is built upon the following tenets:-
- CAPACITY BUILDING:-
Everyone is called to develop and fulfill the self. At birth every person is granted a set of aptitudes and qualities for one to bring to fruition. Their coming to maturity, which is the result of education received from the environment and personal efforts, will allow each person to direct the self towards his/her destiny. Endowed with intelligence and freedom, each person is responsible for his/her own fulfillment. KUSARD tries to facilitate this individual process towards self-sufficiency and freedom through empowerment of the Self.
Each man and woman has the right fo find in the world that which is necessary to live a decent and dignified life.
We hope to achieve our Mission by establishing development programs that can bring to the poor Freedom from suffering and a greater assurance of finding subsistence, health and fixed employment; education and therefore a better quality of life.
I believe that, all of us have an obligation to help those living in sheer poverty. It is no secret that, the distance is growing that separates the progress of some and the stagnation of others. We can no longer turn away or shut-off our ears and eyes to the cries of the suffering in some forsaken backwater places of the world, because, to use a present day cliche " We are living in a Global Community."
"Poverty eclipses the brightest virtues, and is the very sepulchre of brave designs, depriving an individual of the means to accomplish what nature has fitted him or her for, and stifling the noblest thoughts in their embryo. Many illustrious souls may be said to have been dead among the living, or buried alive in the obscurity of their condition, whose perfections have rendered them the darlings of angels."
