Help for those needing medical treatment

By In Pokot On January 1, 2009

Greetings to all in Cranleigh and Bramley Parish and a very big thank you for the £1,500 you sent me recently.  I got 171,500 Kenyan Shillings for that, not the best rate but not too bad.

I used KShs 50,000 to buy medicines for children in our dispensary.  From the rest, I used some towards the cost of a referral of a patient who had badly broken her leg to the hospital in Kabarnet, which is a journey of some five hours by our very poor roads.  We were also able to pay for a second referral a week later of a woman who was in labour.  The remainder went to the school to help our poorer students.

On behalf of all those we were able to help, I would like to thank the members of the Pound a Week Group for their very kind generosity and continuing support for our Mission in Barpello.
