Juja delivery for Kenyan, Somalian and Sudanese orphans

Posted on 27. Jul, 2009 by in Uncategorized

Patty Zishka is a medical doctor who volunteered to bring shoes to an orphanage in Juja, Kenya, a “suburb” of Nairobi roughly an hour from downtown. The orphanage is run by a German nu, Sister Luise, who has been doing wonderful work for more than 25 years. The orphanage houses, feeds and educates over 100 kids from Kenya, Somalia and Sudan. Sister Luise has another facility nearby that cares for many more kids, where we will be sending more shoes in the One World Running winter shipment.

Dr. Zishka traveled to the orphanage’s clinic to support Rabbi Deborah Bronstein, who went to Juja because she knows Sister Luise. Rabbi Bronstein helped bring several “Lost Girls” of Sudan from the Juja orphanage to the United States several years ago. On this trip, Dr. Zishka took medical supplies, clothes and the shoes to the clinic’s urgent care unit. A big thanks to Dr. Zishka, Rabbi Bronstein and Sister Luise, and to all of you who sent shoes that ended up helping these orphans.
