Thanks to those of you have encouraged us along this journey through your unyielding prayer and support there is a brighter future for Malikini Village.
My name is Michael Mutinda, US Army Veteran and Founder - Ifeedone.org. I grew up in Malikini village. This village has been underserved in many sectors to include healthcare, infrastructure, water, food and electricity. Prolonged droughts have made it worse. Many children are born with the help of midwives in home settings. Lives are lost due to complications in delivery. Treatable illnesses are major killers too. Transportation to distant health care centers or hospital is not available due to infrastructure. The residents have worked hard with hope and desire to survive and prosper, to live without fear, hunger or sufferings, imagining how their lives could be better and then have a means themselves to change it. However, it has been hard for most people in this village, to meet their most basic needs, let alone attain their dreams or desires.
It was this experience that caused me to do desire doing something. I want to establish and build a missionary center that will facilitate convenience for missionaries across the globe and enable the village access to the basic healthcare above all.
Birth of an organization
The story of Mother Teresa and her renowned statement/quote “if I can’t feed a hundred, I’ll feed one” Moved me to action, like Shamgar with whatever I had. Judges 3:31. As a result, Ifeedone.org was born.
Ifeedone.org vision is to “Become the most progressive and result oriented Christian organization in the world, using minimal resources” via integration and a collaborative effort among local, national, international businesses, faith- and community-based and medical organizations.
The goal will be to co-ordinate and provide pragmatic services such as medical, social, agricultural and educational intervention to Malikini village and have it in a way that it is self-sustaining and non-dependent on donor funds.
Specifically, Ifeedone.org will tailor its services to providing medical intervention, public health, food, clothing, housing, clean drinking water, solar energy and paying tuition. The existing collaborative effort was the key deciding factor to engineer its vision in meeting the identified and personalized needs of the villagers. Ifeedone.org is looking for local organizations and individuals of good will to be pioneers in a great success story for this village.
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and will not lie: though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:3”
God has enabled ifeedone.org to host several missions and activities in Malikini to include donating clothes and food since 2007. In December 2012, ifeedone.org commitment to sponsor a poor child for four years of high school education by paying full boarding fees and tuition since January 2009 has seen the child qualify for public university after scoring overall grade of A- . To God be the Glory.
