29 September 2012 - 30 June 2012

It is with deep sadness that we report the death of Gianfranco, the Order of Malta’s Ambassador to the Republic of Kenya. He died in an accident on the morning of Saturday 30th June 2012 whilst flying his plane in an air display in South Africa.

Gianfranco’s passion for Kenya began aged 13 when he first visited Kenya. From that time on his love for the country deepened. When he became a Knight of the Order of Malta he saw that he could do more for the welfare of the Kenyan people by negotiating a bilateral relation between the two governments.

Reports from the family of Baby Trevor are that he is continuing to develop well. His physical development is slightly delayed due to having been so ill as a young baby, however he is now beginning to get strength in his legs and pull himself up to a standing position. It won’t be long until he is walking! He continues to give great joy to his parents and sisters and is a wonderfully happy and content little boy.

We have been very lucky to currently have 3 volunteers helping us this summer.

Tuohy Ahern is in Kenya for 6 months and is the friend of the daughter of Ambassador Robert Shafer. Ambassador Shafer is the Order of Malta’s Permanent Observer to the United Nations in New York. Tuohy has recently completed a Masters in International Peace and Conflict Resolution and is a great help with the charitable projects of the Embassy. Her focus is establishing a new project in a slum village on the edge of Nairobi and carrying out the necessary due diligence giving reassurance to our donors. Tuohy is wonderfully enthusiastic and great fun. It is a pleasure to have her in the office and her commitment to the work is gratefully received.
