Support for Sylvie

Sylvie has been a good friend and colleague to many in Maralal throughout the years. She is passionate, selfless and caring and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Well, now she needs our help! After losing her mom to cancer earlier this year, Sylvie was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago and had to go back to France to undergo treatment, leaving her husband, Joseph, and two daughters, Naitoti and Nanyu, behind in Kenya. In the midst of all of this, Joseph had been sick with pnemonia and was in and out of the hospital in Maralal. Sadly, Joseph passed away just a day before Sylvie started chemotherapy.

I am trying to raise money in order to provide support to Sylvie, Naitoti and Nanyu over the next few months, at least until Sylvie understands better her prognosis and can plan the way forward for her girls. Most importantly I want the money to go towards Naitoti's school fees and needs so that it is one less thing that Sylvie has to worry about during this difficult time.

Please contribute what you can and keep Sylvie and the girls in your thoughts and prayers.
