Charles de Lint once said, “I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can’t change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.”
Many people know him as Digital Humanitarian but to many, his name is Philip Ogola, a blogger, a social media enthusiast and a champion for humanitarian good. And as the old adage goes, everyone has a story tell but there are very few years to listen.
Philip Ogola developed some kidney complications after a sore throat infection and is now in dire need of urgent specialized medical care. The medical care needs 2 million shillings, the amount that Philip Ogola cannot raise on his own and he is now appealing for your help.
Someone once said that there is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others. Making life better for others is what makes us human, it is what differentiates us from others species and it is the only way we show love. In words of Mother Teresa, love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same – with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.
To help the Digital Humanitarian have access to the specialized treatment, use the PayBill number 131493 with the Account name being your own name.
Remember, if you are in the luckiest one percent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 percent. Helping each other is what defines us and sets us apart from other elements of creation.
