On 31st May 2015, Red Cross of Mombasa had their annual World Red Cross Luncheon Party for the orphans, disabled and special needs children. Children from different schools would travel long distances to attend this event. On this day, the Red Cross team aim is to make these children happy and enjoy the event. This year, Red Cross was also celebrating its 50 years of service. Furthermore, this event provide the children an opportunity to showcase their special talents and skills, it is one of the ways of creating awareness about their unique conditions as well as giving them a chance to network with, and see other children who need special care. Not only do the children learn a lot, and get motivational talks by people who are from similar backgrounds, who have achieved success in life is an asset for them but most of all, they find joy in this one special day, a time for physical and emotional change, which makes them extremely happy, they celebrate and enjoy with a variety of games, plenty of different types of snacks, sweets etc. At the end of the day, they go home with goodie bags and educational items. Perhaps this is normal for other kids but it is something very special for the vulnerable kids and it happens once every year at this event.

CHB NEWS BULLETIN
 
MOUTH CANCER – A WARNING TO US ALL


 

In the last three years, CHB has observed increasing number of mouth cancer cases in our community. The cause of this serious disease of Mouth Cancer (from the cases that we are aware of) were due to chewing of tobacco (famously known as Pariki or Mawo) and cigarette smoking.
 
Sadly, about 80% of the cases of Mouth Cancer ultimately had resulted in deaths; some young people became victims of this dreadful disease. We would like parents and school teachers to watch out very closely the children and students who indulge in chewing of tobacco and stop them before it is too late to do so.

GUARANTORS REQUIREMENT HAS BEEN REPLACED AND NEW LOANS LAUNCHED

A Resolution for removal of the requirement of Guarantors for the Higher Education Loan and replaced with Parents/Guardians undertaking was adopted at the recently held Supreme Council session in Mombasa.  The resolution reads as follows:

Be it resolved that effective 1st June 2015, students applying for Higher Education Loans will no longer require to provide two guarantors for their applications. The Student and Parent/Guardian will have to take an oath in writing to repay these funds as per schedule, with the Parent/Guardian taking on joint-responsibility. All Jamaats will endeavor to assist Africa Federation in processing applications, due diligence, disbursements, and follow-ups into all such loans.

The Education Board is empowered to put new processes and controls in place to accommodate this new policy, especially related to necessary measures that should be incorporated to deal with students who willingly delay or default on their repayment obligations.

The Education Board is hopeful that with the passing of this Resolution, students will be further encouraged to pursue tertiary education.
