Water Is Flowing from the Well

Water is flowing from the well and thanks are flowing from the Villagers!

Because of my husband Carl’s illness and passing, I have not posted for many months. However, for several years our Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick (UUCF) has shared our collection once a month (called split-plates) with non-profit organizations not only locally […]

The Danger of Unclean Water

Steve King is re-working the grant proposal to send it ASAP to The Rotary Foundation. He asked Jackson about villagers dying from unclean water. Here is Jackson’s reply:

It is very clear that most people in the village(adults and children) suffer from Typhoid, Amoeba infections and Malaria. This is an indication that most people don’t […]

Great News!

Yesterday I opened an e-mail that literally got me bouncing in my computer chair. It was from Steve King, Rotary grant writer and well guru:

I have very good news to report. I just received notice from the District 7620 Grants Committee Chairperson, Lisa-Marie Monsanto, that the committee has approved our project application, including a […]

Jackson's visit to U.S.

Since Jackson Liaram will not be visiting us this month, I am sadly canceling the scheduled events. Jackson was turned down for a visa a second time. He received a message of 214(b), which means he did not convince the consular that his visit was going to be temporary. I find this amazing because officers […]

Another Rotary Club Joins Us!

Steve King e-mailed me that Mike Hammond, Treasurer of the Rotary Club of Prince Frederick, MD, called to report that his club approved funding and is joining our project. That makes four clubs in District 7620: Lexington Park, Leonardtown, and Prince Frederick in southern Maryland and Fredericktowne in mid-Maryland.

Thanks so very much Prince Frederick! […]

Steve King gave me the okay to publish his e-mail thanks to Jackson, which also gives you the flavor of his first visit to Kenya. Daniel Sopia, a friend of Jackson’s and also from Oltorotua, was their guide on a short visit to Fig Tree Camp after visiting Oltorotua.
