Childbirth is a process filled with many emotions but we never expected to grapple with the pain of losing our dear Wanja. On July 27th 2014, Wanja Mbatia lost her life while bringing a bundle of joy into this world, a baby girl named Riley Wanja. She is the blessing keeping us from suffocating under the monumental heartbreak. We have set up this fund to help with the cost of a memorial for a beautiful, kind, giving woman that would have been an incredible mother to Riley. The fund will also be used to set up a small trust to assist with Riley’s needs.

Thank you for your prayers, kind words and generosity.
