All the sponsorship money will go to support the Moyale Mission in Kern a. I he mission is devoted to the settlement of a nomadic tribe in a desert area, where there are problems of famine, drought, shortage of food and shelter, and disease.
There is a shortage of medical supplies and staff, and Catholic Relief Service has run out of funds for the project.
