Rental challenge is just one in a million that the children go through as the home depend solely on well wishers and friends making live hard as they are always in short of finance to run the home.Raising school fees for the children has become a big burden because it is hard to get donors and sponsors.
The other biggest challenge is getting medical attention and it gets hectic when the kids fall sick especially when trying to get an extra coin for hospital bills.Clothing as a basic need is a dream to the kids especially to teenagers who outgrow their clothes daily,including school uniform.

Getting help from donors of other nominations apart from Adventists has become a challenge because most of them are put off upon realizing that the home is associated with Adventists and donors show their backs claiming that evangelistic doctrines can not marry those of adventism,adding that Adventists are rich and therefore they should chip in and help. This should challenge any Adventist reading this and make us all aware of the need for carrying each other’s burden.
