# December Christmas and all that

Ken soon came up with a few ideas for the boys

December was the second month of school holidays and it was important to keep the children occupied.

Well Ken soon came up with a few ideas for the boys who took to the work with relish. The next generation of mechanics were soon discovered and to our amazement several boys enthusiastically joined in digging an extension to the septic tank (Irish navvies look out). I never saw boys so keen to use pick, shovel, jemby and crowbar. It was a revelation. They were at it before breakfast and I had to stop them at dusk to go and get washed before supper.
In no time at all – a few days they had a hole 8 ft deep and 2ft 6 ins by 10 feet long. I miss them and am going to have to employ a couple of men to finish it off now that school has started.

Christmas day at Ngaremara was fun and especially for the youngest discovering presents. Esther and Damaris completed a great job ensuring everyone received their bag on the day.

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.
