All of us at Olalo of Hope-Kenya are ALWAYS so thankful we have funds available when the calls come in to help with Urgent Medical needs. There’s only one reason we do…and that’s YOU…our amazing folks who donate to our medical fund and give us the go-ahead for saving lives.
Thank You to every one of you!
The most heart-wrenching requests that come in are asking for help for children…babies, toddlers, young children who are ill or injured. Seems like we’ve had our share of those recently and I’d like to share with you two of our most recent.
Just 2 weeks ago an Olalo team member noticed a distraught family outside the local hospital. After inquiring to see if he could assist, he learned their two children were on their way to school when they were hit by a car. They had no money to get help from the hospital...but Olalo of Hope did!
The 10-year-old suffered broken and bruised ribs, broken toes on both feet, bruises, scrapes and possible head injuries. Her 7-year-old brother was killed. Such a sad and devastating loss for this family.
Due to your support, Olalo was able to cover all the hospital costs as well as covering the fees for eight follow-up checks through the next month. Thank You!
Just this week, Olalo was alerted to a mom at the hospital with her 2-year-old son who had been run down by a motorbike. The child was badly hurt and unconscious. A head scan was needed but had to be done at the next town. The family had no money and didn’t know what they were going to do.
Olalo was able to secure an ambulance to take the child to the other hospital and pay for the scan as well. Two days later, the boy has regained consciousness and is talking. The scan shows he has a slow brain bleed. At this point in time, that is all we know for sure.
One thing we do know and are certain of; that is because of your generous giving to Olalo’s Urgent Medical Fund, we will be able to provide what is needed for this toddler to hopefully recover…and with your continued help will be ready to assist with the next Urgent Medical need.
Thank you for making this all possible. Your gifts to Olalo not only bless and help those in need of medical care, but also their entire family. (not to mention all of us at Olalo of Hope-Kenya who get to actively participate and help the families.)
Thank you, and God Bless!
