PASH UK Background

Benard & Agnes Opiyo Muga

PASH UK aims to promote fund raising activities within the UK and develop an awareness of the needs of the PASH organisation in Kenya, founded and coordinated by Benard & Agnes Opiyo Muga from Kachieng, Oyugis.

PASH (Physical and Spiritual Help) Development Christian Organisation is a community-based organisation working around the towns of Oyugis and Kisumu in Western Kenya near Lake Victoria, to carry out the following activities:

  • Initiating projects like farming and agriculture to provide food, security and alleviate/eradicate poverty levels in the community, and in time provide self sufficiency.
  • Promoting learning and education to orphans and children from poor families in schools and other learning institutions.
  • Promoting the spread and the true understanding of the Gospel among community members.

PASH works in the community through different youth and women’s groups in line with its objectives as an umbrella organisation.

PASH initially started in 2002 as a youth group in Kenya, whose members were meeting to share Bible discussion and also to carry out farming activities to help the many widows, orphans and the poor in their community.

Patron David visiting Benard & Agnes in Kenya

David Hargreaves is the patron of PASH and lives in Derbyshire, England.  As well as giving PASH members encouragement, hope and vision, David assists them in developing improvement programmes and projects, and arranges funds to be sent direct to the PASH organisation.  If you wish to donate, you can use PayPal, debit/credit cards or cheque.

All management and organisation in the UK is done on a voluntary basis, so 100% of money raised is sent to Kenya.  PASH UK is in the process of applying for charity status.
