Aussie Buddies,Adelaide,South Australia
Much love and thanks to a dear friend,Annie from far away from Adelaide, South Australia who has just spent another 5 weeks with me. Annie and I first met in 2006 when she first came to Kenya to Volunteer with AMKA HIV/AIDS Project through Global Volunteer Network,Newzealand. She loved Kenya and the field work so much,she returned within 3 months that same year and has been coming ever since. She has formed her own foundation with the help of friends back home, called Caring for the Children of Africa and comes to work alongside me every year. This past 5 weeks we have been extremely busy and have had lots of fun spending the fundraising money from Adelaide. We have built 14 huts in Pipeline Camps, started another big chicken project,also there,buit an outdoor kitchen for the porridge program at Kikkopey Camp,finished building a classroom at Jikaze, as well as buying food supplies including maize and beans seedlings, and fertilizers for more crops at Jikaze. We are also yet to purchase some goats for Kikkopey. We thank Annie and other donors so much who continue to spend a lot of their time with fund-raising back in their home towns. It means a lot to us!!! God Bless!!!
