At the end of March Just One: Africa sent a small team to Kenya to continue our work with 2 very special organizations. John and Dorcus started Lenkai School is in Southern Kenya close to Amboseli and Mt. Kilimanjaro and Phoebe, who runs Salem Orphanage/School which is located in Western Kenya on the shores of Lake Victoria. We were able to distribute 120 water filters to these locations providing 120 million gallons of clean water for over 3000 people for life! These communities have struggled not with access to water but with access to clean water. Just One: Africa is the first organization to bring in the Sawyer water filter to these areas and make clean water accessible to schools, villages, and even hospitals! Typhoid and other water borne diseases will be a thing of the past as they begin to thrive!
Just One: Africa passed out 40,000 meals courtesy of the very generous SERV International and we were able to distribute them to widows, in slums areas, and to those with HIV/AIDS who needed good nutritious food to take their medication with. We personally passed out 20,000 meals to those in desperate need with the remainder helping to stretch the food supply for the orphanage in Bondo. What a blessing!
We brought important school supplies and books for the children to use for their studies ensuring that their education will be higher quality! We brought countless other donations with us that abundantly blessed these communities and will leave a lasting impact on them for generations to come!
We also spent a lot of time listening to the dreams these local leaders had for the future of their communities and together we strategized different sustainable solutions to get them there! We are excited about the future of Just One: Africa and all the world change that we have been able to be a part of! It takes JUST ONE!
Ready for another round in June 2014!
