May Update

Thanks to KaratBars we served over 200 meals to hungry children in May. We gave away more than 20 pairs of shoes, provided new t-shirts for the children, and have attended to many of their health care needs.

Not only did the children eat but they feasted. They had pilau a traditional rice favorite with an entire goat for two Sundays. We had an American week where we had hotdogs and American style side dishes. Mostly thanks to Terra who organized and cooked for the event. The children love daga (small Tilapia fishes) and ugali and then requested it two weeks in a row.

We have purchased pots, pans, and other cooking needs to be able to feed the army of small people. Below are some pictures of the things we purchased in the US to enable us to better serve the local children and the Feasts we have served on Sundays.

We look forward to finalizing on the house we have selected for the children in June and have big plans for the months to come and we hope you will stay tuned!

Also if you have not yet purchased a KaratBars card today to support us and to save gold, please do… one day you will be glad you did.

Here are some pictures to tell the story…
