Maureen joined Cana when she was 9 years of age together with her sister Emmaculate. Maureen is an orphan whose mother died of HIV/AIDS and her father who is also sick and was not able to take care of them. He decided to take Maureen along with her siblings upcountry to live with their grandmother. After the grandmother died, they were forced to move to Nairobi and again stay with their undependable dad. Maureen used to roam around the street looking for food and help, until the neighbors decided to report to the area chief who brought them to Cana Rescue Center and into the Compassion for Africa sponsorship program.
Maureen is currently in her final high school year (form 4) at Senior Chief Koinange High School, and she aspires to be a clinic officer. She is 17 years old, loves Jesus, cooking and dancing in the worship team.
