HELL BROKE LOOSE!
No sooner had the announcement of the disputed December 27, 2007 presidential elections were put in public than the hell broke loose in the entire country. Most parts of the country were engulfed with massive disorder that resulted to killings, looting of properties, torching of houses, schools and an attitude of unlawlessness was witnessed all over. Some of the areas that were severely affected were, Eldoret, Kisumu, Kakamega, Mombassa and Nairobi.
BBK FALLS VICTIM
In Nairobi where Best Buddies Kenya operates, some of its stronghold programs were not spared either. Two of our Best Buddies High school chapters,Ngei High school and St. Genesis High school which fall under the mathare area where hundreds of lives have been lost, houses torched and properties looted were also affected. Both peer buddies and buddies of these chapters who live within mathare have been directly and indirectly affected with the aftermath. Some of these students’ houses have been torched, looted and even some lost their loved ones in the skirmishes which were mostly generated by a fight between the two communities.
Due to this tough situation, it has been hard for these students to cope up again with their normal life which includes reporting back to school for their new term. School necessities have been a big shortage and a major obstacle to them. As a result of this, Best Buddies Kenya is planning to donate school supplies, exercise books, text books and pens to support their educational endeavours through the Global Giving Kenya Relief Funds.
Best Buddies Kenya, would therefore like to express an utmost ‘THANKS’ and gratitude to the unwavering support to the donors who have made this mission a success and welcome them wholeheartedly to reply by email or posting a comment on the update page if they have questions or concerns.
THANK YOU ALL!
