Intersex is a complex problem where children are born with either two sex organs (Male or Female) or one visible organ while the other one is either hidden, malformed or deformed.
This is a rare condition that affects both boys and girls in Kenya . This is mostly a genetic/ chromosomal complication that has nothing to do with tribe, race or some beliefs and supersticions. Unfortunately many children born with this condition are treated with rejection, prejudice and suspisionn. Some are adandoned by parents while others are segregated from schools and communities. To a great extent this rejection has resulted to say suicide , crime and promotion of the same sex relationships. On maturity these children do not acquire birth certifcates, identity cards, voters cards, an other legal documents .
The Kenyan law does not recognize these people and therefore do not enjoy the benefits for those born with disabilities.
Its our hope that now we have created an avenue to help these people through counselling, medication, corrective suggeries and rehabilitation. This through the “The Let Me Be Me” campaign.
This campaign is an initiative by Gamafrica Foundation an organization foundend by Mrs Gathoni Wa Muchomba.
As WaMuchomba celebrates 20 years in media service she requests you to support this campaign to assist more than 132 children with InterSex complications.
