Hi all :-)
In July this year Jade, Jorja and I are going on a mission trip to Kenya to volunteer in an orphanage through the organisation Agape volunteers. In this trip we are going to be living with a host family then going to teach, help, orgainse activities and just spend time with the children in the orphanage. During our trip we will also go on an IDP outreach trip. IDP stands for "internally displaced person" and these camps are a hangover from the 2007 election violence where thoudands of people were made homeless. Unfortunately, since then for whatever reason these people have not been able to retuen to their communities and still live in tented camps spread out across the central African Rift Valley. The conditions in these camps are not good and unfortunately since the UN withdrew in 2009, Agape Volunteers are one of the only full time aid organization operating in these areas. We will he helping run a food outreach trip where we travel to the camp to distribute food and gerneral supplies and a medical trip around every month, where medical supplies are distributed with the help of local doctors.
This trip is truely a once in a lifetime experience and we would both appriciate any help or donations anyone could give!
Thankyou so much !
Alice, Jade and Jorja:-)
