Sister Winnie Mutuku

Sister Winnie Mutuku and the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul run a shelter for street children. The aim of their shelter is to protect children from human trafficking and reunite them with family wherever possible.

When COVID-19 shut down the city of Kitale and her shelter, Sister Winnie knew the need for her support would be greater than ever. Throughout the pandemic, she has prepared food at the shelter and delivered it directly to children on the streets.

Like Catholic Sisters everywhere, Sister Winnie goes where she is needed the most. At great risk to herself and her community, she has provided food, care and masks to some of Kitale’s most vulnerable children, while continuing to reunite them with families and follow their progress at home.
