A random act of kindness?
Johnstone, our former student, who is a Clinical Officer (doctor) in Northern Kenya near the Somali border, meets many challenges. He told us yesterday of a sad case of a one-year old baby girl who has no vaginal opening. The mother has been divorced by her husband because of this. The baby could be referred to Nairobi where there are agencies who can provide the operation needed. However, the mother has no means of paying the fare. We have promised fare for her (about $120) but she will also need some support.. I also dread to think of what will happen to the child in future if she stays in the community which routinely practices FGM. I would hope the agency in Nairobi would provide support and advice. If you can find it in your heart to give a little for this mother and child whom you will never know, click the 'donate' button on www.tembokenya.org and indicate your gift is for 'baby'. Thank you.
