A ROWLEY Regis based charity which helps orphans and deserted children in Kenya has launched an urgent appeal for help to keep going.

The charity, Abundance Ministries International is run by the Rev Terry Brimson who is struggling to cope with the demands.

He is in desperate need of assistance to help man the office - especially during his absence.

The Rev Brimson visits Kenya twice yearly and states: "The work in Kenya is going very well. The orphan care centre has increased while the nursery school has 115 orphans registered, even though the budget only caters for 75 pupils.

"We are the only school in Kenya to give free education. All other schools nationwide charge fees and pupils have to pay for their own text books".

The Rev Brimson is seeking someone who is prepared to man his office in Highams Close for one day a week.

They would be required to handle donations, deal with bank details, administer school fees, telephone contacts and deal with both printing and filing.

He adds: "Anyone who volunteers would have the satisfaction of knowing they are helping to both save and enrich the lives over destitute orphans and deserted children, while giving them a purpose min life".

Anyone interested can contact the Rev Brimson on 0121-559-1288
