On June 5th, Daylight’s staff and dear friend Peter Losenguria’s younger brother suffered a gunshot wound while he was herding his cows. Limaye Loitapira is a small scale farmer who herds his family’s cattle in the desert. As he was grazing the cows he was shot by armed cattle bandits who ambushed him in an attempt to kill him and steal his family’s cows.
Limaye narrowly survived a gun shot wound. The bullet entered his back and traveled through to his neck and mouth, missing vital organs. He was rushed to MOI Hospital a hundred miles away. He underwent surgery and is currently recovering at the MOI Hospital in Eldoret about an hour from Daylight School. Peter is with him.
He will be recovering at the hospital until he has stabilized.
Peter and his son Nicolas

The family is asking to keep Limaye in your thoughts and prayers during this critical post trauma period. The medical costs, which could be several thousand dollars to the family, will be a significant financial strain for a family.
