Mr. Phiri

Mr. Phiri is a blind man living in Ng'ombe compound.  He is 87 years old!  Not too common to see someone as old as he is in Zambia.  He lies on the ground each day with only a bag and blanket under him to bring a little comfort.  He is constantly rubbing/scratching at his arms and other parts of his body because he says it feels like insects are crawling inside of him.  Thankfully, he has a daughter who cares for him the best she can.  Even though he could not see the gift of the BGR bucket and all that was within it I know he will feel the comfort of the items inside.  A big thank you to all who have packed a bucket before.  They are making a difference to so many.
