Waithaka Center

community profile

Waithaka is a large, densely populated slum in Nairobi with a high HIV/AIDS infection rate. The CARE for AIDS center in Waithaka opened in January of 2014, and the program has been met with excitement from church leaders and community members. Our partner church is called Redeemed Gospel Church, led by Rev. Kariuki. Dorcas Mwende and Daniel Kingangi serve as the center's Health and Spiritual Counselors. 

Center staff


Health Counselor: Dorcas Mwende Muvila

Dorcas has been employed with CFA since 2014. She was blessed to grow up in a loving and supportive, Christian family. Now she works with CFA because it is her passion to work with the most marginalized people in the community.

"I love helping and bringing out meaning in people’s life. It's amazing to see lives transformed.”

Spiritual Counselor: Daniel Mbugua Kingangi

Daniel and his wife Hannah have two children, and have been part of the CFA family since 2016. Daniel has spent much of his life in Nairobi. When he saw the opportunity to work with CFA, he knew it was a means of reaching out to many more people who needed Christ and to be loved.

"I want to see clients living a healthy life, physically, spiritually and even economically.”
