thank you corine

Its good making friends and i really appreciate.
at the moment i am in the field sensitizing communities to live together in peace and harmony. for i live at the border of Kenya and Ethiopia and somaila. whereby we have conflicts all the time between communities from this borders. At the moment communities especially form Ethiopia guns are free and easy to acquire.they raid the small villages in the name of taking livestock while in the real sense they are fighting most of us because of the country boundaries.
Maybe you to can tell me what you do and what challenges you face out there. for sharing information one way or another leads to a solution.
you are also welcomed to visit anytime.

Hello, my dear Rukia. I cannot believe it has been over a month since we met at the conference. How are you? I am saddened and dismayed to read about the conditions where you are. Are you in danger? Are you working with an organization? Is there something we can do to help?

I am comforted to know you and Leah have reconnected. Kenya and Ethiopia are lucky to have such beautiful, courageous and strong women.

All my love,
