In my village, Kawethei location in Kangundo district, Kenya, 23 people died and 36 were left with serious injuries after a tragic road accident on the 20th August 2011 as they were travelling back from a dowry ceremony - The groom and 5 others from his nuclear family members are some of those who died. These are people that i knew and know. As neighbours, we used to share little things like cooking salt just as it is in every other rural community in Africa and in the world - For me and others form the village its also time to share the sadness and support each other in every possible way.
CALD and the friends of Kawethei people in Cincinnati Ohio USA organized a fundraising event for the Kawethei Accident Victims on Saturday, September 10, 2011. We appreciate greatly to all those who came, contributed and shared with us at that day and those that still continue to support. - BIG THANK YOU!!!
