With Compassion for Our Mothers

This past September, I traveled to Kenya in support of our humanitarian projects there. I visited several schools and hospitals to supervise our ongoing projects and to donate some much-needed items. I am happy to report that the Triple Gem Society has donated ten more wheelchairs to some people who, having never had a wheelchair their entire lives, have really benefited from these new tools. This is yet another wonderful accomplishment of our wheelchair program, which to date has donated 285 wheelchairs.   full story...

Update from Africa

Dear friends and students,

I send you greetings and blessings from Nairobi, Kenya. I have been in Nairobi for the last five days and have been very busy with our humanitarian projects here. I am constantly reminded that I have not only come to a different country, I have come to a different word. What I hear, see and feel is often overwhelming. To be honest, I am happier here than many other places I visit because I see the results of our efforts and how people's lives are changed everyday with so little effort.   full story...

Eyecare Continues

Eyes are one of the most important treasures in our life. To see the beauty of this world and experience our physical surroundings is a great blessing. Unfortunately millions of people wake up everyday never to see the light of the day. Many live in darkness simply because they have no money to correct their eyesight or cannot afford to pay for the eye treatment.   full story...

Continuing Assistance to the Campaign Against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

Recently we have donated more funds and a computer to the Wajir district of Kenya as part of our ongoing efforts to stop FGM. It is a sad thing to note that such barbaric acts of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) are still practiced in many remote areas in Africa. In some parts of Kenya , in particular, has this age-old practice still going on.   full story...

Two Hunderd Seventy-Five Wheelchairs for Disabled People in Kenya

In the last five years, we have been donating wheelchairs to the most needy disabled people in Kenya. One of the recent recipients of wheelchairs was over 40 years old and has been disabled all his life. Our wheelchair was the first wheelchair he ever had. Can you believe somebody crawling for forty years without being able to get a wheelchair? Many of the recipients of our wheelchairs that we donated had never had a wheel chair and they are very poor people.   full story...

Saving the Lives of Children

Children and babies are the most vulnerable members of our human community. When a child is born we are happy and we welcome them with excitement. Then we must do everything necessary to provide the proper care for their wellbeing. Yet, each year, millions of children die needlessly. It is a fact! In Africa, one child dies of malaria every 29 seconds.   full story...

Caring for the Sick

As you might know, health care crises are a common occurrence in most parts of Africa. Many rural Africans have very little, if any, access to health care. Over the years, we have conducted several projects to provide medical equipment and medicine to help sick or disabled people. By participating directly in each project, I have learned much not only about the great need for assistance in these areas, but also about ways to improve on our efforts. I would like to share with you my experiences from some of our more recent health care projects.   full story...

Painting a Hospital Ward

On one of my visits to Wajir Hospital in Kenya, a male nurse approached me with a request. He asked if I could find a way to help repair and paint the hospital ward where he was working. He discussed how bad the conditions were and explained that he had already spent great effort to clean and repair the floor inside the ward.   full story...
