O’Connor is distributing blankets, Bibles, hygiene kits, and socks in at least 50 pre-planned stops in partnership with churches. 

Kenyan woman Flora Mwikali founded New Scent to restore dignity to children who are victims of sexual violence. Her children’s home and rescue center, New Scent Centre, is now home to 70 children between ages 3 and 20. Mwikali hopes to also start a school and recovery program.
