Well, now doubt about the Kenyan Government, even here! Our medical supplies are still sitting on the dock in a container all packed for weeks now ready to leave. No, not until the Kenyan High Commissioner in Canberra has the cargo inspected. They have outsourced the inspection to a global company S G S Certification which audits your cargo to make sure it meets national and international regulations of the destined country. We were advised a couple of weeks ago of the process but we are still waiting for the inspection. I itemized every item in the twenty three boxes, I laminated the itemized list and adhered the list to the outside of each box so I hope they might just open one or two boxes and not unpack them to check their contents. I also did a concise inventory list which I am sending to Emmanuel (Pastor Daniel’s son) in Nairobi for receipt of the goods.
In the meantime I rang Daniel and Ruth (his wife) who advised me that the Medical Centre is operating with the little medicines they have in stock. The Nurse David works from 9.00 a.m. until 5.00 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Ruth said the people are very happy to have the Centre operating. Daniel is to send photos sometime next week.
I would like to thank the organisations and individuals who are still donating toothbrushes, toothpaste, medical supplies and money to the people of Kanthi. The ongoing generosity of people towards others is wonderful. I shall advise as soon as the merchandise leaves our fair shores.
