Sue, Richard & Toby: expedition to Endau

Sue, Richard & Toby: expedition to Endau

Posted by on Oct 22, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

In the past few days, we have visited the clinic that Pamoja built at Endau. Most people in Kenya have not heard of Endau: it is a remote place. Pamoja trustees built the clinic there because some of them knew the Church pastor, who convinced them that there was a real need in this area. Endau […]

Sue & Richard back in Kenya

Sue & Richard back in Kenya

Here we are again! We flew to Kenya on Thursday 13th October, flying direct this time to avoid any unplanned stays in Istanbul, such as we had this time last year. Slight hiccup in getting on the plane, as Sue was pulled over in the security check: she had a CD player in her hand […]

Sue & Richard update Saturday 9th April

Sue & Richard update Saturday 9th April As I write in Nairobi late on Saturday afternoon, the rain is coming down and the thunder rumbling around. We’ve had some very pleasant warm days (rather like the best of an English summer) since arriving back here late on Tuesday, but there is definitely a change in […]

Sue and Richard update Saturday 2nd April

Here we are again!  Weather report first:  most of this week has continued to be hot – so hot in fact that the locals are complaining!  We hit 37 one day, but last night we had a thunderstorm (accompanied by the inevitable power cut) and some rain, and today has become cooler – the locals […]

Sue and Richard update Easter Sunday

Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

First of all, a very happy and blessed Easter to you all! Unfortunately it is unlikely that you will read this any time close to Easter as the internet here in rural Kenya is even slower and less reliable than it was when we were here in the autumn, so I’m writing on Word while […]

Sue & Richard in Kenya again

When we came home from Kenya in November last year we left a trunk of belongings at Ahero as a kind of deposit for future visits. Our next trip is under way! Sue left Heathrow on Saturday 5th March, and Richard is following on 17th March after another couple of weeks in school extracting GCSE […]

Sue & Richard – postscript to our trip

Posted by on Dec 1, 2015 in News, Stannard | No Comments

So, after six fascinating weeks, our trip to Kenya is over. Our last day in Nairobi was spent at the Kware Care Centre, with various Pamoja workers and sponsored children. It was good to meet Stephen, the medical officer from the clinic at Endau. He is surely one of our unsung heroes, working alone as he […]

Sue & Richard update Sunday 22nd November

We are safely back in Nairobi, enjoying a few slightly more relaxed days around the family as our time in Kenya draws to a close.  Last Monday we went back to the care centre and the school for the last time to say our farewells (or ‘au revoirs’).  We had a final singing session with some […]

Sue & Richard update Sunday 15th November

Sorry it’s been a few days since we wrote – lots happening and the internet has been even more temperamental than usual! Last weekend (7th & 8th November) we had a trip to Millicent’s home village, which is about a 2 hour drive away. We understood that we would be staying with Millicent’s brother, Elisha, […]

Sue & Richard update Friday 6th November

Here’s a little conundrum about Kenya to start with. Why, in a country where no one bothers at all if you are an hour or two late for anything, does everyone, when they get on the road, drive as though every second counts? This week went something like this: On Monday, we went into school […]
