This is not some big organisation!

This is just myself and my wife.

How fortunate are we?

Here we are, enjoying the benefits of comfortable homes, good food, and luxuries such as computers and the internet, and not the least, good education for our children. Not everyone in the world is so fortunate. We've all seen examples on the television, and at times, it brings a lump to our throats and tears to our eyes. What happens there in third world countries when the TV crews have gone home, and we get on with our lives? Those people we have seen stay there, and get on with their lives too.

A small donation can make a huge difference, especially if that donation is made direct and not soaked up by high administrative costs. We believe in taking money direct to where it matters and spending it where it matters. Many thanks for your support!

OUR NEXT VISIT TO KENYA

28 September to 11 October 2013

This time I shall be going with my son Paul. This will be his first visit to Kenya. There are no big new major projects to take care of (I don't think!), and this is a general visit of encouragement to the locals in the community and the children in the schools. They really appreciate that someone is thinking about them and praying for them! We hope to be finding some needy families to help some families by providing a little money. (They won't be hard to find!) A small amount of money goes a long way when the equivalent of $1 is enough to feed a family for a day. It is even more valuable when they don't have that $1.

There is one angel of a lady who has adopted some street orphans, whose meagre mud hut was destroyed in a storm. We have already provided some money to get her home habitable again, but during this visit we'll do more for her.

I also plan to make a couple of visits to the little local cottage hospital. People go there with little children when they are ill, but can't afford innoculations or medication, and often just go away and wait for their babies to die. Death of children is just a fact of life. But we can do something about that, simply by intercepting them and providing $10 (or less!) for the treatment. The money is placed direct into the hands of those desperate mothers at the entrance to the dispensary. As you can imagine, it is a very moving experience for everyone concerned, especially when a life is saved. I wish we could be there every day, but at least we can do something for a few when we are there.

So where does this money come from? Well, I am now retired and don't have an income any longer, but as an "extended hobby" I make hand crafted pens and classy shaving brushes, and the profits from that go into my "Kenya Fund". We also have a few donations from kind people too.

WHAT NEXT?

Most aid organisations have projects that are organised in the western world, and that's the way that it has always been done. Well, we don't believe in just throwing money into a black hole, where much of it is soaked up by corruption. History has shown us that doesn't make a big difference in reality. Africa is still the same. We believe that projects need to be owned and organised by the local people.We like to assist the community to genuinely help themselves. To help them set up projects that are sustainable. All they need is a start. We can't help the whole of Africa, or the whole of Kenya, but we can, and do, make a huge difference to one local community!
