« BackKerryman involved in overseas charity says court poor box donations are very beneficial

A Kerryman involved in an overseas charity says donations to the court poor box are very beneficial.

Eddie Sheehy from Aghadoe is involved with the Kenya Education Project; he’s travelled to Embulbul outside the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, every summer for over a decade.

He says while there’s an argument that charity should begin at home, and there are very worthy causes here in the county, the people of Kenya are in a very impoverished state.

He says Central Statistic Office indices for poverty show that the definition in Ireland is very different to the reality on the ground in Kenya, where people have no water or sanitation.
