Nyaboth Tut went to Ethiopia to distribute the hygiene kits for the girls. They were so needed and so well received that we’ve decided to renew the project. There were literally hundreds of girls who didn’t get a kit.
The clinic where the medicines were given was totally ouf of all medicine. They were so thankful for what we sent to them – the need is desperate. Medicine is easier and cheaper to buy there but we need money for this.
We also sent clothes. There are so many children and so much need that they’ve asked Nyaboth to bring more clothes. Should we focus on making clothes here and shipping them or raising money so we can buy the clothes there?
To meed these needs we’d like to do a return trip in a year and a half to two years. We’d like to send, hopefully 300 kits. This won’t fill all the need but we don’t realistically think we can do more. To meet our goals we also need to expand our committee. We need fundraisers, organizers, and more cutters and sewers, etc. We also need a liaison to work directly with the KLC treasurer to deal with donations.
We have taken a respite but need to get organized and get moving again.
