The Mully Children’s Family (MCF) has been serving the Lord and humanity for the last 27 years. With a motto of “Saving Children’s Lives”, MCF has endeavoured to heal hurting souls and turn sad faces into happy ones. We have touched the lives of children, who had no hope, and have given them an opportunity to flourish.
We rescue and rehabilitate children who are mainly orphaned, abandoned, abused, desperate and neglected. We then provide them with food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, spiritual guidance, mentorship and – most importantly – parental love. That is why this place is called Mully Children’s Family. A FAMILY denotes a place where people live together with love, peace and hope.
At MCF, we consider education as the best mode of rehabilitation. Through this program, we facilitate full transformation of rescued children by supporting them through education until they acquire the highest level of training based on their ability. We also take vulnerable child mothers and offer them skills training in various trades (mainly tailoring, hair-dressing, knitting and cookery) to complement formal education and equip them with lucrative skills for future self-reliance.
Since 1989, MCF has helped to rehabilitate over 12,000 children. Currently, we have close to 3,000 children across our centres in Ndalani, Yatta, Kitale, Kilifi, Lodwar and Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania.
Our spiritual and mentorship programs are aimed at rehabilitating the children morally through positive character transformation with the view of making them to know and love God; while at the same time leading dignified lives. Our goal is to transform them into people who can be trusted and relied upon in future.
It is amazing to listen to the stories of children who used to rummage through dustbins in the streets for as many as ten years; who never went to school nor had nothing to eat; who had nowhere to sleep and tragically did not know God; but all these circumstances changed. They received education, got to know God and trained in various careers. They are now earning decent incomes and leading honourable lives.
These are children who would spend their lives walking in the streets, carrying heavy sacks full of left-overs and had glue bottles permanently stuck to their noses. Their health was poor due to persistent drug abuse and malnourishment.
They had no food to eat and whenever they got something, it was mainly filthy left-overs in dust bins. They did not know good values such as honesty, courtesy, love or kindness. All they knew was fighting, abusing each other, plotting malice against one another, stealing and even killing.
But after undergoing rehabilitation at MCF, their lives drastically changed for the better. They became healthy; physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. They now live dignified lives full of hope.
As the Bible says in Psalms 118:22; ‘The stone that was rejected by the builders became the cornerstone.’ It is difficult to understand and explain how God has touched and transformed the lives of these abandoned street children and turned them into pillars of the society. Most MCF beneficiaries have become pillars of our society. Only God can make that possible. We thank Him for His faithfulness.
