John Mugendi Karoki Orphan Care

Note: I had to create a new fundraiser, due to GoFundMe policy changes. My name is David Nikao Wilcoxson. I help raise funds to support John and his wife Josephine, who take care of many orphans . They live in Meru, Kenya; and dream big about the many ways to serve those around him, to meet their needs and to witness to them about the love of our Messiah. Their heart is huge, their love immense, for those who need help in Kenya.

In past fundraisers we've been able to get a water well drilled, so that they have fresh water. And we've raised funds for shoes, blankets, small mattresses,  mosquito nets, Bibles and clothes for 100 children.

Now we're raising funds to help them build housing for the children and a room for church. This is what it looks like now, but there's a lot of work to be done to complete this project.


"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." James 1:27

Small amounts add up, so please pray about supporting these orphans.
