Can you support us with feeding the homeless this Christmas?
The festive season, as we enjoy delicious meals and the company of loved ones, let’s spare a thought for those who are forced to exist on the donations of others.
Those who might spend Christmas night in a cardboard box (if they’re lucky), or will be roaming the streets of Nairobi hoping for a few shillings or a sniff of glue to numb the pain.
About Homeless of Nairobi
Homeless of Nairobi is a well established charity started by Clifford Oluoch in 2008. The charity supports the homeless by providing them with a hot meal each day, and a moment of human kindness.
Many of those who turn up for the meal are children – under 15 typically – and are subsisting on a meager few shillings.
HoN also works in Deep Sea Slums to feed children, and provide fun and educational camps for them during the holiday season to keep them away from the streets. There are many hungry mouths to feed, especially once schools close and children are at home all day.
Between the end of November and end of January, Clifford reckons on feeding 350 – 400 rumbling tummies on a daily basis, and 100% of this relies on funding.

How you can help the homeless
We’re doing our bit this Festive Season by asking you to donate a meal. It’s just Kshs 100, which you can add to your basket and we will remit directly to HoN. We’ve also asked some of our farmers if they can donate in kind, because fruit and vegetables are particularly challenging to source, and of great importance to the children’s nutritional needs.
If you’d like to donate more, you’re very welcome to – simply add the additional meals on the checkout page, and we’ll do the rest.
Homeless of Nairobi cooks these meals in a central kitchen in Deep Sea Slum, and then transports to an area in Westlands where the homeless know they can come for a good meal, once a day. At that moment, many of them are able to speak to someone from Homeless of Nairobi, and conversations about how to get more support can happen.
Thank you for your support; it means a lot to us.
