# Emmanuel Surgery Update

A recent story about Emmanuel and his need for reconstructive surgery provoked significant interest

The story of our young boy in need of reconstructive surgery immediately prompted several people to organise a sponsored walk to raise funds for the necessary surgery.

The result was fantastic and, together with other donations, we now have £1500 to assist with the costs. Thank you so much for your generosity!

Regrettably, in the absence of approval from the child’s mother, we have had to instruct an advocate to obtain a court order permitting the surgery in the interests of the child. If this is successful, the first stage of surgery is scheduled for 6th August 2014. We will, of course, keep you posted as the situation develops.

Pray for Emmanuel's surgeon as he decides the best course of action.

Kindfund was established as a charity in 2004 to further the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help relieve poverty amongst some of the poorest tribes in northern Kenya, working with the pastoralist Turkana, Samburu and Rendille.

We currently use 5 tonnes of food and supplies per month, providing for 125 children in 4 homes and 250 children in nursery and primary education.

We have dug 7 wells and fitted 7 handpumps, bringing safe water to remote villages.

100% of gifts go to Kenya.
