"You smell it long before you see it, but you’ve got to see it to believe it.
The municipal dump at Dandora, just south of Nairobi proper, stretches 30 acres. Thirty acres of smoking, untreated garbage, snaking like a miniature mountain range through the public housing and shantytowns where some 600,000 people live."
i am on a few of the International Mission Board newsletters/emails. this story touched my heart. sorry, but the video is too large to put on here and im not a pro with the whole HTML code world. but please take the time to watch the video... HERE i used google map to look up exactly where Dandora, Kenya is located, and sadly you could even see the haze of smog over the dump along with all of the shanty houses. oh Jesus, WHY?

"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress..." James 1:27.

tears streamed down my face, there was a lump in my throat, and my heart raced... it kills me that i just bought these crackers for random quick snacks, yet they proved to be life-saving to these children!
