The family, which is the foundation of the Church and Community, faces numerous challenges today, and this is a matter that is of great concern to the Catholic Church in Kenya.

The Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) – Family Life National Office is mobilising resources in a bid to rescue the family from negative media influence and other activists who advocate for family breakdown by propagating and promoting population control and same sex marriages.

Led by the Bishop Chairman of the KCCB Family Life National Office, Rt. Rev Salesius Mugambi, a funds drive was organised to raise money to enable the office roll out its program in all the Dioceses to avert the challenges by instilling family values and encouraging the faithful to follow the biblical teachings and emulate the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Speaking on 6th, June, 2015 at the Holy Family Minor Basilica where the event took place, Bishop Mugambi called on the people entrusted with the duty to salvage the family to persevere as they educate the masses about the family. “There is need to combine forces with other organizations addressing family matters like Marriage Encounter, Education for Life and many others to protect the family, he added.

Bishop Mugambi, who is also the Ordinary of Meru, said the Family Life Office is faced with financial challenges, hence the appeal for people of good will to support it. He, however, said he was encouraged by those who contributed during the Saturday fund raising function. The Family Life Office managed to raise about One million.
