Larry Wu is CRF Director of Field Operations. He has been visiting CRF programs in Uganda and Kenya for the past few weeks.
In every home Larry visited, he noticed a very special custom. We’re excited to share his story with you and we hope it motivates you to honor one another!
Kenyans believe visitors are a blessing to their home. Their greeting to any and all is “karibu!” meaning, “welcome!” A visitor from a far away place is doubly honored because they understand the difficulty in making a long trip, and yet you have decided to visit their home. A surprise visit is treated the same as if it were well planned and expected. They still greet you warmly, invite you in, give you the best seat in the house, and attempt to feed you or, at the very least, provide you a drink.
