My readers may recall Miggie, a frequent contributor to the comments part of this blog and a good friend of mine. He has sent me a request to disseminate the below information. The person it concerns, John Kabuchwa, is someone I have also met though don't know him well. I am familiar with the work he has done with Miggie during the latter's recent illness and rehabilitation. Please consider a contribution to this cause.
I just recently learned about the extent of the drought in Kenya. It has now reached national emergency status. See softkenya.com/kenya/drought-in-kenya/
It happens that John Kabuchwa, the home healthcare giver who nursed me back to health two years ago had founded an orphanage with his wife in Nakuru Kenya. They began by picking up and taking in destitute street children. One by one, they fulfilled the exhortation to feed the hungry, clothe those in need, and provide shelter to the homeless. They take care of 50 children now. Bring up their website (tbc.spacenettechinc.net) (copy and paste to address line) to see the children and the facility. They have established a school and acquired a working farm to provide most of their food.
Unfortunately, the drought has caused crop failures and they are forced to buy food where and when they can with their meager resources. I am helping them out and I hope you are able to contribute to alleviate their plight.
Please write a check payable to John Kabuchwa, FBO Transform Boys Center. Send the check to John Kabuchwa, TBC, 2912 Pepper Tree Lane, Apt B, Costa Mesa CA 92626.
John will convert every penny to Mpesa, which will then be immediately available to the orphanage in Kenya. John has appealed to me in this emergency and I have extended the appeal and the opportunity for this Mitzvah to my friends.
