On Oct 6th through the 13th, I made a journey to Kenya, Nairobi where I had the privilege of traveling with and working alongside Breedlove’s trusted and valued partner SERV International and the founder/CEO of RootRadius, a marketing agency that exists to help causes tell their story more effectively. The purpose of this trip was to personally witness firsthand the use of Breedlove’s humanitarian food products in the field. As a result of the experience, I am also able to confidently come alongside SERV in a partnership to help raise awareness of their program needs, as well as to help raise funds for the acquisition of Breedlove’s food for those programs. What follows is an account of my journey. I hope you are encouraged by it, and motivated to help us to help them by raising the funds to fill one 40-foot container with our food product to feed the precious people they serve in Kenya. More details on this project at the end of this blog report.
Day 1: After about 18 hours in the air, and more hours than that in airport layovers, I arrived in Nairobi. Our first night in country, we stayed as guests at the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) compound where the food and the accommodations were very pleasant.
