A popular Kenyan philanthropist has for the first time narrated how she endured hardship while working as a housegirl in Saudi Arabia, before she back to Kenya and decided to touch the lives of others.
Faith Wanja Mwaura, one of the celebrated philanthropists in Kenya, has been touching and changing the lives of many Kenyans, courtesy of her foundation and the donations she gets from netizens.
One of the memorable things she has done is getting one man from the streets and changing his life. Other stories include building a house for a poor family in Kisii, paying hospital bills, school fees and several other heart-touching cases.
Out of her life-changing help to Kenyans, the county government of Kiambu rewarded her with a job in the ministry of education, where she was offered an opportunity to represent learners living with disabilities.
Life in Saudi Araba
Wanja has noted that even though her current paints a picture of a woman on the right success trajectory, she had to endure a lot of challenges while working as a main in Saudi Arabia.
"Back in 2010-2013, I was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A single mother of 2 who had no other choice but to go work as a maid in the Middle East to feed her children and take care of her mother. They used to call me Faiza because they couldn't pronounce my name, Faith," she started her testimony.
She noted that she went through a lot while in Arabia, which would make her cry most of the time.
She, however, noted that the sufferings she endured prepared her to be who she is now.
"I'm here to tell you who is on that rough stage n situation, instead of having a pity party of yourself, persevere, keep on fighting n put yourself together, when the time is right n ripe, u will tell a story of your past like I do when you are no longer in that situation," she added.
