The Thoya-Oya Children's home inside the Marafiki Primary School was inaugurated yesterday, on the island of Kadaina, between the Mida Creek mangrove.
The island is already known to have been taken under the wing of a group of Italians, led by the initiator Mario Rossi, who died recently.
Valentina Moscheni is among the most active in sustaining social activities on the island and six years working with John Thoya, a Kenyan with experiences in Switzerland and the United States very active in helping its unfortunate countrymen, because he himself is an orphan, with the good fortune to be adopted.
Today Thoya is the right arm of Valentina and, after the Government's request to prepare a structure able to accommodate children without parents who attend the Mida Creek School, has made available its expertise.
obviously needed a fundraiser, in collaboration with the Onlus "Time for Life" and a number of private donations, one of which is absolutely fundamental, by a fellow countryman.
In the past few days finally the construction of the family house was finished and yesterday was inaugurated.
The facility is equipped with separate dorms, ditto for the services, a recreation room and play, dedicated to the memory of Andrea Maffei, the resident passed away a year and a half ago Watamu who adored children of Marafiki.
"This new venture is dedicated to those who are no longer with us but he has done so much for the happiness of these wonderful students - said Valentina Moscheni during the inauguration - and a special thanks to the entire Italian community of Watamu which is always active and closer to these initiatives. Obviously we do not stop here, now it would be nice to be able to also build the kitchen. "
