Welcome to Kintsugi, a Refugee Led Organization based in Nairobi, Kenya. We ask you to take a walk with us in the shoes of a refugee. On our website you will find information about our programs and activities, who we are and the most important thing what we want to do for vulnerable refugees.
IN MEMORIES OF MAMA OBAMA (MAMA KINTSUGI)
Human language has always fallen short of strong words or meaningful expressions or gestures to sing the Heroes whenever they depart from us.
Similarly, KINTSUGI (Nairobi Refugee Led Organization) cannot find words to express the painful experience of mourning the loss of its mother and cheer up the family of LAURENCE NKUNDABANTU known as Mama Obama due her first and only child, OBAMA and a refugee from democratic Republic of Congo. She has been a radical member and leader of KINTSUGI to the extend many say “She gave birth to KINTSUGI, breastfed, raised, nurtured and mentored it since 2016 until she succumbed to COVID-19 while serving the most vulnerable refugees in Nairobi urban, Kasarani Constituency” where she served as KINTSUGI’s accountant and part of office managers.
She will remain our model of hardworking principles, unmatchable service, determination and resilience.
REST IN PEACE MAMA OBAMA.
