Dear Friends of Makeni

Ambuya Passmore.JPG

At the end of December 2008, our dear Ambuya Judy Passmore bade farewell to MEC and to the children of St. Nicholas Orphanage. Mrs Passmore retired due to ill health. She was the house mother just after the inception of the orphanage in 2000 and was especially good with the children when they were sick and in negotiating a pathway through the doctors at the University Teaching hospital in the shortest possible time. We will greatly miss her.

In Mrs Passmore's place we now have Mrs Irene Simwale Chinyama. Mrs Chinyama holds an Advanced Certificate in Social Development and is currently studying with Mulungushi University by extension for a Diploma in the same course. She previously worked for "Rainbow Project" for Street Children, an Irish-based non governmental organization. She also worked with the Child Care and Adoption Society for some years as a volunteer. Mrs Chinyama is settling down well and enjoying the work of being with the children. The children at the orphanage are also very happy with her.
