Big Kenny Details Sudan Experience

Big Kenny Alphin, half of the hit duo Big & Rich, speaks about his experience in the Sudan in an e-mail sent to various media outlets.

Kenny is in the country bringing medical supplies, clothing and other items to the Kunyuk School for Girls. Here are some excerpts from his correspondence. “The past 24 hours in the village of Akon have been the most incredible of my life,” Kenny writes. “We were greeted on the runway by over 500 singing children and community members and leaders. From the school under trees, the clinic with not more than a roof and a table, to a public meeting where they all sang and expressed their appreciation of our visit and urgent needs, this trip has already surpassed my expectations. We were able to arrive with all 20 crates of aid we brought from the U.S. in addition to picking up a couple hundred survival kits from CSI for returning refugees. The trip has no doubt encouraged us all to take responsibility to help and improve humankind. A world without prejudice!!”
