Well-wishers from across the globe have come together to raise over Ksh56 million to build new churches in Kenya and help repair existing ones.
This represents a huge milestone for the fundraiser which began in late 2020. At the time, the goal was to raise Ksh76.2 million (USD500,000).
While describing the goal of the initiative, the fundraiser's organisers stated they are stepping in to continue construction that had stalled due to lack of funds.
So far at least 17 churches have been completed with more set to be constructed in due course.
"God bless you all and on your judgment, these holy deeds will come up. Remember my words," the organisers stated.
Due to the heavy rainfall in the country, construction of the churches has slowed down.
The organizers however urged the well-wishers to be patient as their money was being put to good use.
Besides their own efforts, organisers have also appealed to the public to chip in with donations which will help towards achieving the mission.
"Donations have sadly been slow and I respect that times are hard, but if anyone can, please help us," the organizers wrote.
Kenya is known to be a religious nation where different faiths enjoy freedom of worship.
The right to worship is enshrined in the 2010 Constitution under Article 32.
