Container with humanitarian aid material arrived in Kenya September 3, 2008 — by kedar


More than half a year ago kids-to-kids.com, member of the International humanitarian help organization “The Oneness-Heart Tears and Smiles” packed a container filled with school supplies donated by various organizations and schools in Switzerland as well as packages that were collected by children from Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic and Finland, for their little Kenyan brothers and sisters. It all started with a run at the Bodensee in Northern Switzerland, where “Kids to Kids.ch” inspired some school teachers to organize a run with the children and afterwards collect items for the packages. After a long journey and months of waiting in Nairobi their partner in Kenya, Ruth Schäfer got the needed papers and permissions from the Government and the Custom Authorities and the container was recently brought to the Rhein-Valley Hospital in Kasambara-Nakuru, Kenya. Today the hospital crew will start unloading the school banks and chairs that will be given to Tegla Loroupe for her Peace School in Kapenguria. Marathon runner and Peace Run organizer Tegla came to Switerland several times to promote the cause of the needy people in Kenya. All the crew members are looking forward to this because it is a special day for them. Not every day do they get a container full of goods they normally only dream of.
