Ferdinand's Fund

$13,079 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 83 people in 1 month
The late Ferdinand Mwangura Micho battled Chronic Myeloid Leukemia for 13 years. Since his diagnosis in 2005, he dedicated his life to creating awareness of this form of Cancer in Kenya. Through Henzo Kenya, an organization he helped set up to provide patient & caregiver support, he worked with Max Foundation among other global organizations to advocate for treatment for Cancer patients in Kenya and Africa at large. He was an advocate till his last breathe.

Ferdinand has left behind a 6-year old daughter. Funds raised here will be used to:

• Offset hospital bill
• Meet funeral expenses
• Set up an education trust for his daughter
• Get health insurance policy for her

The burial is slated for 10th March 2018. His daughter will be starting a new school term in April 2018 therefore the funds will be needed immediately.

The support will go a long way in ensuring that Ferdinand’s daughter gets a decent education as well as be able to access quality healthcare if need be.

From the interactions his family has had with other patients, we would like to continue with his work in helping many with patient -caregiver support.

We will be eternally grateful for your help.

From Mrs. Micho - The late Ferdinand Mwangura’s Mother.

Dear friends in Christ ,

Words cannot express our gratitude neither can we explain the divine consolation that has all along compassed us around because of your prayers for us.
You stood in the gap when my children and I could not pray due to grief. When the pain was too much to bear you reminded us of the love of God .
You also provided us with all that you could humanly give; prayers ,moral support , finances as well as traveling with us to Voi to lay Ferdinand to rest. We're overwhelmed by your love.

Friends, the Micho family says, “Thank you and God bless you all. Asanteni Sana”.

Hi everyone. I am a personal friend of Ferdinand’s mom and sister. Ferdinand also visited my home last fall. I will be withdrawing the funds in my name and forwarding to his sister Belinda who will make sure the funds are applied to the funeral expenses and Ferdinand’s daughter’s schooling and other needs.
