Hello and Happy Holidays!
November and December seem to be the two busiest months of the year, with Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas and all the travel, relatives, presents, parties and holiday cheer packaged up with them.
But in the midst of all the busyness, the world over takes moments here and there, to give thanks and to celebrate our friends and family, both near and far.
All of us at CHAT are certainly thankful this time of year, to all of you who make our work possible.
There is often nothing like the simple gift of a smile, so that is what we give back to you this holiday season; the smiles of the countless men, women and children here in Kenya, that your contributions have helped to create.
Our clinics and camels are still trekking over the plains of Kenya and hope to be doing so for many days to come. Below is a summary of our work over the past two months. As you will see, we were able to send the camels out for a month’s journey.
Have yourselves a warm and cheerful holiday season. A big ASANTE SANA from your African friends here in Kenya.
Kuwa na Krismasi njema…..
