Thank you for your support in 2020!
January 2021

Thank you to all who have supported Nasio through buying alternative gifts in 2020!

Our infographic shows our fantastic achievements in 2020 which were only possible through your support. A huge thank you as none of this would have been possible without you.

We are excited to announce that 2021 marks Nasio’s 20th Anniversary.

Our Anniversary appeal this year will focus on raising funds to expand our amazing medical centre so that we are able to provide even more lifesaving healthcare to our vulnerable communities. Last year as a direct result of your help an incredible 11,052 patients were treated at our medical centre – we are looking forward to providing help to even more patients this year.

In 2020, you contributed to an incredible 471 alternative gift items being donated. Amazing!

Our Christmas appeal was a huge success, and we were delighted that all of our Nasio families were able to receive a Christmas box thanks to your amazing support. Each box contained a wind-up radio along with a food parcel and an item of clothing for a child.

The wind-up radios were included as a direct response to the Covid-19 situation. These were key to our appeal, giving us a way of ensuring that from now on that important information is able to reach our vulnerable communities, who can now keep up to date with the latest news. The radios also provide a much-needed source of entertainment and joy for our families.

Esther Adhiambo, a widow with three children, and recipient of a Christmas box describes what Nasio’s support has meant to her family:

“My name is Esther Adhiambo, I am a 30 years old widow with three children, two boys and 1 girl. My husband died on 8th August 2016 with Hepatitis B. I have been working so hard to provide the needs of my children through casual jobs and farming.

A year after the death of my husband, I joined Nasio Trust and my first-born child, Marion Akinyi was enrolled at St. Irene Day Care Centre in Pre-Primary One. It is a blessing to me and my children because I was also constructed a house in 2018 which really changed my life. I have a roof on top of me and don’t have to worry about being rained on or my children catching cold.

My son, Calvin Amwayi was also lucky to join the program last year in January and God has really blessed us through my children’s sponsors. He has received a mattress, a blanket, mosquito net and bedsheet. He now sleeps comfortably with no worries of being bitten by mosquitoes. My daughter also got a mattress and also now sleeps well.

Last Christmas was a very happy and amazing holiday for us because my children had new Christmas clothes and food parcel. It brought smiles on our faces and we are so grateful for that. I also received wind up radio and is really entertaining us. We are able to listen to news and also all the current affairs on a daily basis. My boy Calvin likes dancing so he really dances to every tune that plays on the radio.

I just want to let you know that I am so grateful and always praying for my children’s supporters and all of you out there who are helping us raise our children holistically. May God bless you all.”
