Eusebia Hope offers a home, education and unconditional help to abandoned and orphaned children in Kenya.
Eusebia Karega lived in Igoji, a village in Kenya. In 2004, she decided to help the growing number of children in her village who had been abandoned or orphaned, often as a result of HIV/ Aids. Every day, after her long shift as a midwife, Eusebia went home to cook for the children waiting at her door. Eusebia died in 2013, but her work continues. It is led in Kenya by her mother, Teresa, and in the UK by her daughter, Christine.
The Eusebia Hope Foundation (EHF) is the UK charity supporting this provision of unconditional help for the children. It is run by a group of Woldingham residents, who share Eusebia’s belief in the African proverb: ‘It takes a whole village to raise a child’.
