We received the kinder and they are now at the Synagogue for distribution tomorrow to various places.
Mark leaves tonight and Izzo will drive him to the airport. It’s a pity Mark is leaving just when we received the Kinder Kits.
We have been extremely busy working with the IDP Community at Maai Mahiu. Corrine has engaged women in knitting and this activity alone has greatly empowered the women. They see that they can come together and knit and earn a living without great effort because their area is a hardship area where it hardly rains. Lisa has been working with the children playing games and she is a great source of inspiration to the children. Mark has been very busy doing interviews with the victims of violence and has been working with the youth (men) playing football.
Everything so far has been going well and now that we have the Kinder Kits we will be much busier and fulfill the greater part of our mission.
P.S. Moar and the Synagogue team have been very helpful and they deserve a pat on the back.
Hi its Mark Gavin and I’m back in Canada after spending 10 days on the Kinderkits donation in Kenya. Unfortunately the kids were held up in customs and were only released the day before I was due to leave, but I did take an extra bunch of our ecojot workbooks with me on the flight to Kenya. I was able to deliver these to the kids in the IDP camp in which we were working. We also visited other schools in the Nairobi area for which the kits were designated and by now should be delivered. The poverty is horrific and there is so much need. Many of the schools have no lunch programs which means that the kids find it hard to concentrate of their school work. I must also mention the incredible commitment of the teachers and school workers, many of whom are working without pay. The trip was amazing and I want to thank everyone at Veahavta organizing this incredible experience.
