Naomi Briggs recently did a sky dive to raise funds for the Relief and Drought Recovery Programme for Kajiado Diocese in Kenya. She managed to raise £400 which will go a long way to helping those in need in Kajiado.

Here’s short word from Naomi:

“Doing a sky dive is something that I have always wanted to do. The famine in Kenya is also a cause close to my heart. I was born and brought up amongst the Maasai people and know how harsh life can be for them.

“If I could do something that was scary as well as exciting and also raise some money to help with this appeal then it would make it all the more worthwhile.

“Initially on the jump I was excited and exhilarated but during it I was petrified and even confused on the free-fall. When the Shute came out it was amazing to be able to see so far and I began to enjoy it. Not sure if I would do it again though!

“I am very happy with the amount of money raised, especially now that the rains have not come properly yet in Kajiado I know this will help so many people.

“A big thank you to everyone who helped to support me – I really believe it was all worthwhile.”

CMS Ireland partners with the Diocese of Kajiado in Kenya. In recent years Kenya has suffered the effects of poor rainfall, drought and famine.The diocese has sought to help people in Kajiado who are most impacted by these natural disasters and CMS Ireland has supported these efforts.

To date over £3000 has been raised and sent by CMS Ireland and this has been used by the diocese to great effect. Naomi’s funds will follow shortly.
