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.

Hal Wardroper and Jack Shaw are both family friends of the Grand Master of the Order of Malta. They arrived in Kenya in early July and have been a great help in many different projects. They spent the first two weeks with the Malteser International Community Health Workers at the TB clinics in the slums of Nairobi where they were a great help. After that they spent one week at The Nest Children’s Home close to Limuru Town where they were very popular with the children and found time for ball games, painting and generally interacting. This is attention that the children crave and the staff are often unable to find the time to provide.   After that they travelled by bus to Lamu Island where they are currently assisting Dr Nurein Mohidin in the hospital. They are staying in our volunteers house and being of great use in many different departments within the hospital. Luckily they are also finding some time to enjoy the other side of Lamu – sun, sea and sand!
