Dear Mama Val,
Thank you very much for your email, about the student Kelvin Daniel Shukia who sent you email, he is not included in the 5 students whom we sent their names to you. Daniel is a special case, he is in his final year unfortunately he has not been able to pay his Tuition Fees when it was due, throughout his five years he has been paying bits of money which he got hold of, the 14,059,000Tshs = 8,800USD is accumulation of Tuition Fees not for accommodation. His mother has been trying hard to pay fees for his son but unfortunately she has no other person to help to clear the debt.
Please as this is a special case if you can find some people who can help to support Kelvin to finish his studies it will be great if Kelvin pass his exam he will be able to get the job and support his poor family.
God Bless you.
Mrs. K. Kairuki
Dr Grossman I have resume classes, since monday. I went to see Mrs Kairuki as you told me and we discussed about my situation and she advise me to keep on looking for other sponsors.Thank you very much Dr. Grossman and God bless you. Kelvin Daniel Shukia

Tanzania, March 2011
...Thank you!! Thank you!!! Thank you!! I just wanted to write a thank you note for all your support in making my trip to Tanzania absolutely wonderful J My trip really opened my eyes to the fact that if you put your mind to something it can grow beyond your expectations. I would defiantly enjoy returning to visit Dar es Salaam in a couple years so see my friends.
I truly enjoyed every minute with the beautiful children at the Nira Orphanage. Even though they didn’t have much they all had the biggest hearts ever and taught me so much more than I’m sure I taught them. They live in an orphanage located in a small place called Mbagala. I got to witness how they all live and help be apart of it for a few weeks. I feel that it is so amazing that with alittle work and a lot of love you can help others in our world to make their lives just that much more enjoyable. When we all put some support & prayers together we can inspire others beyond our belief. With all of your help we were able to build a structure with 2 toilets/2 showers for the boys, as well as, the girls. They were all so excited to see this being built, as before all they had was 1 really old toilet and no shower just buckets of water.
...Many thank you’s from the bottom of my heart and all my children at the Nira Orphanage say asante sana(thank you very much). Some wonderful friends & family have come together in donating more money for water filters and to build a small dining area for the children, as well as, needed supplies. So thank you again and God bless everyone, I sure know I am J Take care and all my love.
Hope you are feeling better today. Melissa arrived safely as planned just before midnight yesterday. We met her at the airport and let her spend the night with us at Msasani. Today she will sleep in, have a late breakfast and then come to MMH/HKMU at around noon for a familiarization tour of MMHEN institutions. We shall then tale her out and show her a few places she may need like the Banks/Bureau de change etc. She will also spend the night with us today because Edith has a function in town today which needs her attention all day and will therefore not be at the Orphanage the whole day and a good part of the evening. Edith will come to fetch Melissa for the trip to Mbagala after we hold a brief meeting at MMH together tomorrow morning. We shall let her send you an e-mail as soon as she comes in at noon today . She was in buoyant mood when she arrived and seemed to like it here.
Val, thanks very much for the carry on stuff Melissa brought us. They will be very useful.
Let me pen off for now and catch up with you later.
Please take care. Many hugs,
I greet you in the Mighty and Precious Name of our LORD Jesus Christ and it is my hope that these greetings will find you doing alright in Jesus Name. I consider it a privilege to write to you once again. now i'm in MD III and i have been doing alright with my studies, i thank God. as the new season of studies has started, i humbly would like to still request of your help as with regard to my hostel fee for this new academic year. otherwise i'm glad to send you seasonal greetings as we are approaching the new year 2011. may God continue leading you and blesses you abundantly

Halo Dr. Val,
I am grateful for all you are doing for me. It has been long time since we saw each other, my bad luck is that; some times when you come, I hear of it that you have been in Dar Es Salaam after you just left.
Thank you for your encouragement, you have empowered me a lot, see now I was able to do well in all my courses. For the last year I have been rotating in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine and now we are a bout to complete Psychiatry after written Examinationsnext week, we just returned from Dodoma (Mirembe Hospital in Dodoma for Psychiatry rotations).
Next year will be my last year; I will be in the fifth year rotating in ObGy, Surgery and community Medicine.
I thank you so much; I was able to pay all debts concerning the Hostels, (I pray that you proceed also for the next year). ...
I pray that may God empower you more and more in every thing you plan and do.Thanks and God bless you.

My dear friends,
Late new year greetings to you all.
The last part of 2008 was in fact a busy time for me slowing down all my communications to welwishers, freinds and partners. It was mainly because of family helath and house construction problems. I am now ok and let us keep in touch.
I realised that I did not write report on the BSF training here in Lunglei and finally a brief report is here by attached for you to read. Let me also tell you that from December last we started disseminating the technology in two more places, one in our Hospital and the other in a village called Ramlaitui. We keep passing on the good news of having clean water in other parts of the state. Thank you to you all for providing skills which is very much appropriate for us. May God reward you for your concern.
Where do we will go from here ? Is there a way of drawing your continued interest to us, for BSF traing and support and for our rural Malaria clinics where we provide skills and few follow up maetrilas to rural community to solve malarial problem for their own. It works effective to detect malarial infection to people and providing correct doses of antimalarial pills there by saving lives and expenditures besides the village people manage their own health problem with a sense of ownership and respnsibilty.
God bless you and protect you right through this 2009.
