Holo Day 2 - Happy New Year 2022!
It’s what we have been waiting for, to meet the community & the children of Holo. 🤩
As we entered the area we are borrowing, the children and parents welcomed us with song and dance!
Today we had the opportunity and honour to visit some households in the Kibera informal settlement (slum) of Nairobi. It was good to see some of the recent improvements in infrastructure in Kibera, such as the sealing and widening of internal roads.
The sign of the times - RAPID TESTING - NEGATIVE results! YAY~
We decided to test ourselves for some peace of mind. We nearly had the tests taken away at customs (because of tax reasons), however praise God we managed to talk our way through.
It’s boarding time!
We nearly had all the correct paperwork. There was a stack of paperwork they asked us for. I had to do a Kenyan surveillance form on the spot, but the flight attendant was happy to help.
Travelling at Christmas time can always seem a bit hectic. There are often many competing demands, co-ordination with multiple parties and tight deadlines. This year has added uncertainty, with COVID-related concerns and travel restrictions.
