Our Madrid office recently collaborated with Emalaikat Foundation and Missionary Community of St Paul the Apostle to support their long-running project to help villagers in the remote desert areas between Kenya and Ethiopia who, among other misfortunes, suffer malnutrition as a result of severe droughts in the area.
The project involves building fishing boats for the villagers who live on the coast of Lake Turkana, which, although is not safe to drink from, provides great fishing opportunities. Our team in Madrid has raised sufficient funds to build, maintain and purchase nets and other fishing tools for one fishing boat which now is ready. Over 50 people, including family members of the fishermen, will benefit from this contribution. The boat carries the name of Bird & Bird.
