Let me on behalf of the AJFAND Secretariat send warm greetings to all our friends wherever you are and whatever you are doing. We continue to value and appreciate your immense support and warm thoughts. We all connect by spirit even if we have never met and we on our end wish each one of you a peaceful, safe and happy livelihood. Remember a survey just released by Gallup Kenya ranked Kenyans as some of the happiest in Africa! I laughed when I heard it in the media; we are also amongst the most corrupt. Reassuringly, we are the most generous in Africa and rank 15th in the world. As I have grown and visited many communities in Africa, including my own, people will insist on sharing food with you the visitor even when they do not have enough for their family.. ......Foreword
