Still in Memphis, we stopped at Lorraine Hotel, the spot where Martin Luther King Jr. was shot dead on April 4th 1968. Next, we also stopped by the Blues Hall of Fame which was not far from Lorraine Hotel. This is certainly the old side of...Read Full Post »

It was a couple of weeks ago that we got a devastating phone call from Dr. Micheal in the Aitong clinic, Kenya. He informed us that the portable ultrasound and portable dental unit that was donated to the clinic in August, had been stolen.
Naturally we, like him, was heartbroken to think that these important pieces of equipment were gone. He seemed to think it may of been an inside job, and naturally had the police to investigate ...Read Full Post »

Hello once again. It seems we have to make a change of plans for this year.
As you were aware, we were planning on taking a shipping container over to Kenya this year, filled with medical equipment. We recently managed to speak with the person who did the same thing last year, and he informed us of the 'extra costs' and troubles involved. What we thought was going to cost us about $5000-, will blow out to $10,000, maybe even mo...Read Full Post »

Hello everyone, just a quick up-date to say Bob has finally ended his time at Bangladesh. I know it was sad for him to say good bye to all the good friends and people he met there, so we can only hope that we all stay in touch, and thankyou all for making him so welcome.
On the Kenyan scene. We have been disappointed of late to hear that the solar work we had done by our original solar team (Think solarTechinic) have let us down terribly. It explains why the batteries have not been last...Read Full Post »

For those of you who are not fluent in computer sites ect, (like me) i have just learnt that if you open a page, like this one, and scroll right down to the bottom, you will see a small red and white symbol with the letters RSS.
By clicking that button, i think it means that if and when i make a up-date in that page of my website, you will be notified to your computer, instead of having to go on line to check if i have done anything new. ...Read Full Post »
