Sister Freda and Richard Robinson
Sister Freda Robinson and her late husband Richard were so touched by the poverty-stricken people of Kitale, Kenya that it prompted them to build a hospital/medical clinic for those who could not afford care. They then noticed that many children who had been prescribed medications with the instructions “take with food,” had not actually been given the medication at all, because they had no food to eat. Sister Freda was compelled to begin a feeding program and school for the children of the area, praying daily that God would supply. The program currently feeds 100 tiny mouths every week. In addition to the feeding program and clinic, Sister Freda conducts mobile medical clinics that are held in surrounding villages. In 2009, Guidelines helped Sister Freda start the Nzoia School of Nursing to train bright young men and women to earn a living and meet the dire need for medical care. Sister Freda’s fascinating life story is the subject of Darlene Sala’s book, Heart of Compassion, Hands of Care, available at our bookstore, and through Amazon.
