    Hi I know that you are all probably very busy with the ride right now but I’m wondering if there might be a time in the future that someone could come to Nova Scotia to promote MCF? Is that even something you do? Would it need to be part of a bigger event? Would there need to be multiple speaking opportunities? Costs?
    I’m just thinking of general questions at this point, wondering if it’s even a possibility. Thanks for all you are doing for MCF!
    I know that COVID-19 has changed everything too.

      Hi Sandra,

      I (Ruth) am responding on behalf of Arvid who is on his bike.

      Thank you for your message. Arvid speaks to groups regularly. He can communicate with you once this event is done. And of course we would have to see how things are with COVID regarding travelling restrictions/guidelines.

About MCF

Charles Mulli is a former street child from the slums of Kenya. He became extremely successful in business, but then God called him to give it all up and care for the orphaned and abandoned children still on the streets in Kenya. Charles Mulli is the founder and CEO of Mully Children's Family. To learn more about MCF, click here.

Arvid's Role

God has called me (Arvid) to be an ambassador for Mully Children's Family. I have chosen to use ultramarathon cycling as my platform from which to fulfill this calling. You can follow my ride, here, at To read more about me and my story, click here.


I am asking you to help. I am trying to raise funds for the ongoing and capital expenses for the child mothers program at MCF. This program provides the critical life skills the young mothers need. To learn more about donating, click here.
