Our Parish Sponsored Child Nicholas Onyango Okondo

Nicholas Okondo was born on November 22, 2004; he is now 12-years old.  He lives with his mother, father, and a younger sister and two brothers in the  Nyangoma area of Kenya, Africa along the shore of Lake Victoria. (This is where President  Barack Obama’s father was born and is buried.)

The family lives in a house made of mud and sticks with a corrugated metal roof. They get water from a rainNicholas Okondo 2016 catchment in the yard, and they share a latrine with neighbors. They  are Christian and speak Luo. Nicholas walks 45 minutes to primary school.  He has started to write his own letters.

Nicholas would like to receive letters from his adopted family, and he would especially like photos and children’s drawings; a birthday card is always special. (Include the information below on all enclosures.)  Whether you sponsor Nichols financially or not you can write to him.
