LSCK brings cheer to Wagocho’s, Sagana

1 Oct

Liverpool Supporters Club Kenya (LSCK) recently visited Sagana, a town situated some 100 kilometres from Kenya’s capital Nairobi, along the Nairobi-Nyeri Highway. The town’s name comes from Kenya’s longest river, the Tana, which is also called Thagana in the local dialect.

The group’s mission was to visit Mercy, a single mother struggling to bring up nine children on meagre resources. Despite four of her own, the energetic mother has embraced the challenge of single-handedly bringing up her late sister’s five children.

The group has for years now supported Mercy’s quest to educate her children by paying fees for two of them. The money so collected has ensured a relatively smooth transition from primary to secondary education.

WARM WELCOME: Guests are received in the time-honored African tradition.

Having arrived just after 3 p.m. to a warm reception, the group settled down to share a meal with the hosts. The event’s master of ceremony Josiah Karanja introduced his entourage and presented the group’s donation towards the homestead’s school fees kitty.
