    Dr. Charles Mulli - Fathering a Nation | Luma & Bloom w Nic and Kate Ep. 12

    Dr. Charles Mulli - Fathering a Nation | Luma & Bloom w Nic and Kate Ep. 12

    In this weeks episode, we sat down with the incredibly inspiring Dr. Charles Mulli, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and  environmentalist. 

    While growing up in Kenya, Dr. Mulli faced incredible hardship after being abandoned by his family at the age of six, leaving him to spend his childhood simply trying to survive. Fast forward into adulthood, Dr. Mulli had a life-changing incident, when a group of kids stole his car while on a work trip. What stuck with him most, was the desperation these kids had displayed, a desperation he knew all too well from his own childhood. 

    This incident is what led him to start Mully Children's Family, a non-profit organization based in Kenya, that works to support and house disadvantaged youth. A true inspiration to many, and to thousands of kids who now lovingly call him their father.
