    Unfortunately many Kenyans in the diaspora have gone to meet their maker. When one of us is called, we gather around and set up fundraiser event to send our brother or sister home. I have attended fundraisers where less than half the target has been met.I always wonder, what will happen to my body when I leave this world? Will my children set up a gofundme account? Will they meet the target? Clearly, that is their problem not mine. That is why I enrolled as a AWA member. If I die, I want to be able to alleviate some of the grief from my family and friends. There will be no target to be met as far as funds are concerned because AWA will foot the bill.
