Child of Mercy Orphanage Centre (COMOC) was formed in 2010 and is situated within a half-acre walled plot close to Shelly Beach, and a five minute walk from the Likoni slum area south of Mombasa. It is home to 23 children – both boys and girls from ages 5-15 years.
Before getting here the children had lives without any prospects: They are orphans without a family, neglected and abandoned children who lived on the street or from poor families who could not afford to take care of the children. Child of Mercy Orphanage Centre is situated close to Shelly Beach and a five minute walk from the Likoni slum area south of Mombasa across the Likoni Ferry.
It is 10 minutes from Timbwani Nursery and Primary School and about half an hour to the large supermarket back across the ferry in Mombasa. The house is set within a half-acre walled plot with poultry area, veg plot and space to play games with the children.
