Sarah Emigh Doyle and Friends at the Kakamega AIDS Orphans Care Centre

MDI residents Judith Bradshaw Brown and Sarah Emigh-Doyle will share the love and joy that they experienced working at the Kakamega Orphans Care Centre in Kenya at a presentation at the Jesup Library on Wednesday, July 25, at 7 p.m. Founded by Kenyan Quaker women, the Centre provides AIDS orphans with food, a safe home, and an education, but, most importantly, with love that helps them thrive. Friends of Kakamega, a Maine-based Quaker non-profit organization, partners with the Kenyans to support the Care Centre and organizes a service project trip to the orphanage each summer to work with the children and introduce participants to life in Kenya. In 2011, Judith and Sarah went on the three week service trip, and Judith returned for two weeks in March of 2012. They will show and discuss a video and slides of their time there. Sarah and her twin sister Hannah have written and illustrated a children’s book about the Care Centre, which will be available for sale and signing at the presentation. This program is free and open to the public. For additional information contact the Jesup Library at 207-288-4245 or Judith Bradshaw Brown at judith@davistownmuseum.org.
