Helpless

It is a sad morning here for me and my friends at Project AIDS Orphan. Project co-founder, David Okongo and his wife, Justine, are currently under seige and in mortal danger in the Kenyan city of Naivasha where Mr. Okongo lives and works as a horticulturist.

According to a report by the BBC, inter-tribal violence broke out late yesterday, and at least nine people are feared dead in Naivasha having been hacked to death with machetes.

You can read the latest update at the PAO blog here.

The BBC story is here.

Please, please pray for David and Justine. It is literally all that can be done for them.
