This Is Not Our Story.
Belwop Rescue Center exists for one single purpose: to give a hope and a home to the abused, neglected, and orphaned children of Kenya. Started in 2005 through the vision and faithfulness of one woman - Veronica Mumbi - Belwop is an orphanage that creates an environment that fosters learning, personal growth, and equal rights. Belwop has opened its doors to over 50 children, and several are now adults and completely self sufficient. Located in the little town of Nyeri in rural Kenya, it isn’t likely you’ve ever heard of Belwop before… but once you have seen Belwop, it will never leave you.
Right now twenty two kids call Belwop home, call Veronica ‘mother’, and are receiving an education thanks to the efforts of people like you and me! Unfortunately, right now all these kids live in three small bedrooms and share a single working toilet… Belwop has reached capacity and cannot admit anymore children, yet there are so many more that need a home. Every day Veronica has no choice but to sadly turn away more children because there just isn’t enough space for everyone, and we think that isn’t right. So, we’re doing something about it.
We need to raise $100,000 to build a new orphanage or purchase and enhance an existing building that will fit 100 kids. Yeah, a hundred thousand dollars is a lot of change, but it’s nothing compared to the real change it will produce in the lives of these beautiful kids. Once we’ve reached our goal and purchase the home, we’ll need ongoing support to keep things running, and we’ll need more partners and volunteers to help us.
