I want to take a moment to give thanks to everyone who has helped with the MARS project thus far. The success of this project has been a team effort and it would not be where it is now without the help and support of those around me, both near and far. My soap campaign has had unexpected attention and support both here and at home which has been incredible. I have been truly touched by the forth coming nature and willingness to help from everybody involved. These have not all been friends and family, some have simply heard about the campaign and offered their support and help through genuine kind-heartedness and generosity.
One such person is Mitul Shah, Director of Bipco Kenya. Mr Shah heard of my project here in Kenya and very kindly sent 570 bars of soap from Nairobi to Kisumu in support of my work. These soaps arrived today In Kisumu and as I thought about preparing a thank you email I found out that tragically Mr Shah had been killed on Saturday in the Westgate Mall attack. I would like to take this opportunity to give sincere thanks on behalf of the MARS project and all the girls it supports to Mr Shah for his very kind and generous donation. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
“A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you…”
To all the other victims and their families, my thoughts and wishes go out to you at this difficult time.
