A nameless boy left on the streets
To fend for himself no food to eat
A helpless child no roof overhead
Huddled in a doorway used as a bed.
Street children in this far away land
Until Kate offered them her hand
To live in a house with a bed at night
To give them a chance to read and write.
These street children are fortunate to have found
A place to live warm and sound
To help these children was a must
They were Kate’s inspiration for The Kindu Trust.
A poem by Pearl Kennedy, a supporter of The Kindu Trust
. Her poem was published in the Trust's newsletter (Issue 3, March 2000). The Kindu Trust was founded by Kate in 1998 to help needy children in Ethiopia.
