This coming Monday the 1st of May a concert will be held at St.Joseph’s church in Baltinglass at 3pm.
The concert is the brainchild of Mark Caplice, his father Pat and James Nelson of the Celtic Tenors to raise funds for orphans in Nairobi.
The trio are traveling to Kenya in June with the hope of building a future for the kids of Kibera slum in Nairobi.
There are approximately 2.5 million slum dwellers in about 200 settlements in Nairobi representing 60% of its population and occupying just 6% of the land. Kibera houses about 250,000 of these people. Kibera is the biggest slum in Africa and one of the biggest in the world.
The work we will be doing will build adequate accommodation for homeless children and good standard schools to give them the opportunity of an education so they can have a chance of a much brighter future.
We’ve raised €1,000 so far but need another €8,000 altogther to cover building expenses, food, shelters, medical expenses etc.
We would Love if you could help by attending one of our events or visit our MyFundit page and donate what you can.
