Fill a Tool Box for Kenya

Reg Garrett (403-875-0731) ( and his wife Cathy are volunteering at the AIC Litein Hospital in Kenya. About two years ago he became aware of the acute shortage of good hand tools in the country, began collecting them, selling them to local tradesmen and using the proceeds to help support the Paliative Care program in the hospital where they are volunteering. The funds are used primarily for pain medication and also for a compassion fund to help people who cannot afford to pay their hospital bills. Lets make this a "Children's Missionary Project." Reg is looking for any hand tools: saws, chisels, planes, tri-squares, plumbing and mechanics tools, etc.
