On 16th August 2020, the Apostolic Nuncio to Kenya, Archbishop Hubertus Van Megen, paid a visit to Mathare slum where he met the members of the charitable NGO “Mamma Africa Italia Kenya”, coordinated by Reverend Father David Kamau Mbugua, and their beneficiary community.
Nazareth Hospital is situated on Riara Ridge, Limuru, Kiambu West District (about 25Km north west of Nairobi city) and is a Catholic Mission, not for profit Hospital, under the Archdiocese of Nairobi.
In the context of the COVID -19 pandemic, the Embassy of the Sovereign Order of Malta in Nairobi launched a feeding programme on 30th May 2020.
Everyone was extremely touched by the Homily delivered by the Apostolic Nuncio who eloquently gave a brief description of the beginnings of the Order, highlighting its objectives and stressing that the sick, the poor and the abandoned are not alone and that the Order, whenever it can, accompanies them in their struggle.
In honour of the World Day of the Poor, the embassy staff, family and friends team up with staff from the British High Commission to Kenya to support a superb initiative called iAfrica.
