Nice to see you here. I have sent you earlier message expressing the gratitude of the physically challenged who have benefited from the mobility devices you brought to our club for distribution. In fact the demand is even more now and we will be glad if you can work around for another consignment soon. K. is in US and I hope he has briefed you about the joy of the beneficiaries. The distribution was also broadcasted on Ghana National Television and it was all David Talbot and Rotary. Thank you soo much for the good gesture.
What a joy in my heart to read from you!! Oh thank you so much dear brother David for your email to me.My members are so very happy with the walking sticks and crutches that you gave to them....oh my..oh my...my brother we are really praying for the work of crutches4Africa and am so proud of being part of your work in Kenya.
I have lots of pictures that we took when giving the crutches to our disabled church members who are effectively using them and they share great testimonies of how these crutches have greatly supported them in their daily walk.
Tomorrow I will send the pictures to your email. We still have a larger number of desperate and needy crippled persons who surely need the walking devices.Oh thank you dear brother David...am so glad the Lord connected us together! Please lets us keep in regularly communications always! Pass my greetings to all our dear friends at Crutches4Africa in America.We are part of you and we so dearly love you David!
Warmly, Pastor Gordon
I am a Physiotherapist from South Africa and worked with people in extreme poverty, including at Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, South Africa's biggest township. I was able to help people who had very little and often not the means to get even the simplest of mobility equipment. I have since lived and worked in England, New Zealand and Australia and in each of these first world countries mobility aids are given out single-patient-use, something that truly shocked me when I first left South Africa. Almost every day I came into contact with someone wanting to give these aids back to be re-used. Each time I said "we can't take these back", it made me think of the dire need for these aids in my home continent of Africa and how life changing each aid would be for someone back home. For many years I have said to myself that I need to get involved and after a bit of research I found C4A - exactly the opportunity I had been looking for!! So after many years of thinking about it, I am finally doing it and have become a collector for C4A.
