Poppy Buchanan leaves for Central Kenya

Posted: 1 April 10

April 1, 2010—This morning Poppy Buchanan and six of her family members left for 10 days in Central Kenya. Since early February Poppy has been recruiting donated supplies to help equip the newly constructed WAKA Continuing Education Center, built with funds from Burning Bush, Inc. Today she took with her 700 pounds of those supplies—textbooks, blood-pressure machines, bandages, sutures, gloves, cameras, teaching supplies, simulated patient mannequins, and more—packed into 14 pieces of baggage that will travel in the luggage compartment of the planes while each traveler will carry what they need for the trip in backpacks or carry-ons. Poppy and friends have been doing this since 1999, fulfilling her promise made to God and to her friend, Susan Kaburu to help these native Kenyan nurses have what they need to care for their people. Poppy will have much news and many photos to show us upon her return. For now, we say “Good travels, Poppy.”
