Well a possible ‘breakthrough’! After several telephone calls to the Kenyan High Commissioner’s office in Canberra, I finally spoke with Consular Maurice Amisi, who assisted me with the connection of water in the latter stage of the Water project back in 2012/2013. Maurice advised me of the laws relating to the importation of medical supplies and goods into Kenya. If the goods are being donated to a registered institution then the Kenyan Government does not charge taxes for the goods. Maurice guided me through a website: ecitizen.go.ke in order to register the Dispensary. Ezekiel, Daniel’s son offered to attend to the registration, so fingers crossed, the goods maybe on their way to Nairobi in the near future…..Daniel always says ‘patience Hellen’!
Interestingly Consular Maurice advised me to have direct contact with the Government officials in Kenya, not the Parliamentarians!
