News from Tom Ochuka
- Samwel, Janet, William, Asif, Agnese, Thank you for your marvelous letters.
I spoke with Tom Ochuka of Deaf Impact in Kisumu. He said the
demonstrations are going on now in Nairobi and they are waiting intently
to hear what is happening there. They are also trying to locate the
deaf and to preach peace and reconciliation and not to fight at all.
The price of 2 kilograms of maize has gone up from 30 shillings ($0.45)
to 100 shillings ($1.50).
Agnese, Thank you for your support! I have started sending small
amounts of money to our participants in Kenya with whom I have gotten in
contact, starting with the most troubled areas, so they can be active
and help others. I will report on the money when they receive it. The
banks are closing due to lack of funds at their branches.
In our chat room today I chatted with Douglas Arege +254 720 466 340 in
kisii a small town in western kenya. He writes: the only help we need is
as i said emergency relief: i.e food ,beddings and clothing to displaced
families at various police centres and community grounds
William Wambura will translate materials into Kiswahili, I encourage him
to translate Samwel's letter for peace so we might distribute that.
John Dada also came from Nigeria and chatted for a bit.
I look forward to chatting with us at http://www.worknets.org/chat/
later today. Fred is in the chat room now. Samwel is on Yahoo messenger.
