Memories of Mzee


Early this morning we lost a most beloved family member: has Mzee Balilaine passed away. When we first met Mzee, we found him  in very poor health living in the worst mud hut struggling to raise his grand children and our little loves Mwajuna and Adam. Most of Mzee's family had been wiped out by AIDS.   We were able to build  them a house thanks to so many. This house brought this old man back to life giving him hope, happiness and pride. For 3 years he was a new man because we cared. But 3 weeks ago he took a bad turn for the worse, he struggled hard but died this morning at 3am our time.

Enjoy this short video of memories of Mzee
