This past September, I traveled to Kenya in support of our humanitarian projects there. I visited several schools and hospitals to supervise our ongoing projects and to donate some much-needed items. I am happy to report that the Triple Gem Society has donated ten more wheelchairs to some people who, having never had a wheelchair their entire lives, have really benefited from these new tools. This is yet another wonderful accomplishment of our wheelchair program, which to date has donated 285 wheelchairs.
During my stay in Kenya, I was also able to donate an examination table to the maternity ward of the O’Kalau district hospital. Fifteen to twenty babies are born in the O’Kalau hospital every day but, until my visit, they did not have an examination table in the ward. A request for help was made by the doctors and nurses through their Member of Parliament, the Hon. Muriyoki. It was a wonderful experience for me to be able to witness the celebration as we donated the examination table and also a blood pressure machine on the 29th of September.
We continue to help needy and underprivileged women, children and babies with such small acts of compassion. I hope that you also will be able to make a difference in somebody’s life with a small act of compassion.
