Court of Appeal Judges Visit Charity Home to Raise Awareness on Mental Health

Judges of Appeal including Lady Justice Wanjiru Karanja, Justice Patrick Kiage, Lady Justice Fatuma Sichale, Lady Justice Jamila Mohammed, Lady Justice Ali-Aroni and Justice Mwaniki Gachoka, as well as staff members on December 16, 2023 paid a visit to the Missionaries of Charity Mother Teresa Home for the Mentally Challenged in Ngumba Estate in Nairobi. This was part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. The initiative focussed on raising awareness and giving visibility and attention to issues surrounding mental health.

The Missionaries of Charity Mother Teresa Home is home to 66 male minors and adults with various mental and physical challenges. It is a haven that resonates with compassion and celebrates the diversity of human abilities, uniqueness of personalities and the beauty in every person.

The judges and staff engaged with the nuns, staff and residents and through the various interactive activities, heartfelt conversations broke down barriers and fostered connections.

The caregivers led by the remarkable and humble Mother Teresa Sisters of Charity are drawn from different parts of the world. The dedication of the Sisters, and the caregivers was inspirational and reflective of their calling and dedication to the vulnerable members of society.

Since the Home is run on donations from well-wishers, the gifts from the Court of Appeal were well appreciated. The contributions of the judges and staff were used to address the identified needs of the Home. Donations included construction materials, food items and assorted gifts.

“Our team is profoundly moved by the resilience and positivity within the home.  The visit and shared moments of joy and reflection has left an indelible mark in our hearts. We appeal for more societal conversations to raise mental health awareness and interventions for the wellbeing of mankind,’ said Justice Mwaniki Gachoka, Chairman of the Court of Appeal Judges’ Welfare Committee.
