Concerned with for the safety of the girls, Fr. Riwa took action two years ago. At that time, he constructed a ten foot stone wall across the front of the St. Clare compound and along one side. This is because there are busy public roads which pass that way. However, Father did not have the money to complete the wall around the back and far side of the St. Clare compound.
But there is good news! Work to complete the perimeter wall around the back and side has begun due to increased violence in the area and in Kenya. With national elections only a few months away, people are becoming more and more agitated. Recently, several young men came onto the property to steal mangoes. Fortunately, Sergeant Susan, a police officer assigned to St. Clare, apprehended them and they were arrested. This action made it clear that the perimeter wall needed to be completed. A recent donation has made this possible, so “safety is just a few stone blocks away!”
