We will be asking folks to donate an extra buck or two at the door to help Issiaka, a boy Ibrahim met when he was in Africa this spring. The son of a blind woman, he has been a street kid picking up work where he can. Now his mom has passed away and he is on his own.Very smart and great personality and he and Ibrahim took a shine to each other. He has skin cancer all over his back and is in a lot of discomfort. Babata Hospital in Burkina Faso works with herbal treatments and has offered him a free room if he can find funding to cover the cost of his treatment which would take place over 6 months at a cost of $3,500. (about $600 per month).
