BENEFITING: SPRINGS CHEMUCHEMU OF EAST AFRICA
David Omondi has worked with the Los Angeles Catholic Worker for years, providing hot meals, medicine and clothing to the skid row community in downtown Los Angeles. On Saturday, November 30th, 2013 he left for Nairobi, Kenya to start the first Catholic Worker Community in the continent of Africa.
David's family has acquired thirty acres of land outside Nairobi, given by the Maasai, and it is here that he is starting a farm and house of hospitality. David's first item of business is to dig a well that will provide a free, renewable source of water for the Maasai community. Once completed, the well will benefit not only the Maasai community, but also thousands of slum residents in Nairobi.
Your donations will enable David to complete the well and establish solar and wind power for the community. These sustainable resources will enable David and other members of the community to continue the Catholic Worker's mission of humanitarian relief and peace in the region.
