The Child Care Centre is an institution for the rehabilitation of mainly the physically disabled children. It was started in 1979 by 2 African Inland Church Missionaries with the assistance of the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) and the AIC Church Kenya through the local AIC Church, as a place to feed and treat malnourished children during a famine. In the process the team found that there were so many physically disabled children as a result of polio and many other diseases causing severe paralysis. These children with physical disability were growing up in hard and harsh conditions of life owing to the semi-arid nature of the environment and the nomadic-pastoralist way of life of their parents. Yet the children were in dire need of orthopedic surgery, physiotherapy and long term post-operative care and rehabilitation.
The Centre was therefore turned into a rehabilitation institution. Now the Centre receives an average of 100 physically disabled children per annum. A total of 2,801 children have graduated from the Centre and are now active participants in nation building, and a total of 63,120 persons have benefited from the services of the centre since inception. The Centre also receives children with disabilities from Samburu, West Pokot, Baringo, Machakos, Makueni, Nairobi, Narok and Northern Tanzania. Due to this increased demand, the Child Care Centre operates another branch in Baringo which is fully operational.
An internationally esteemed self-sustaining Centre of excellence providing full rehabilitation and empowerment to persons with physical disabilities for the Glory of God.
