Fire destroy Asante Sana Children Centre in Mambrui

Girls dormitory burnt down: read here how to help

29-12-2019 by Freddie del Curatolo

A sudden fire devastated this morning the Italian Children Centre Asante Sana in Mambrui, destroying the women's dormitory of the structure.
In a few minutes the flames reduced beds, mattresses, pillows, mosquito nets and support beams to ashes, which burned down the roof. The firemen arrived and had water too, but the bulk of the damage had already been done. Since there was no makuti, at least the fire did not spread to other areas of the important solidarity centre in Mambrui.
Fortunately in this period the structure, which houses more than one hundred children and offers them teaching with a school parified within the center and to eat with a large refectory, in addition to having offices and services, is not attended by many schoolchildren who are almost all on vacation in the villages of relatives. There are also many small students from the area who come from outside.
"We only had the youngest orphans with us, but they were all rescued - confirms Mama Piera Chiodi, the volunteer who created and has been running the structure for years, in tears - but the damage is considerable.
Now for "Mama" Piera is a total emergency, because the school will start in a few days, on January 6 and the girls have no space to sleep, nor a bed. For this reason, through malindikenya.net we launch an immediate help campaign, through Asante Sana's Current Account, made out to Pierina Chiodi and/or Fathuma Shee, A/C N° 53497490001 DTB MALINDI - From Italy BIC: DTKEKENA. From Kenya you can also send help through Mpesa to the number 0704677666 made out to James Macharia Maina. Those who know how much good Asante Sana has done and is doing in recent years cannot fail to respond to this unexpected and painful cry for help. Kilili Baharini, a structure that has always shown solidarity, has already decided to allocate the funds of its year-end lottery, during the vigil of 31 December, for the reconstruction of the dormitory. It is hoped that others will follow suit.
