Binyavanga Wainaina has suffered a series of strokes with complications. His family and doctors have determined that further medical care is urgently needed and that the best place for such care is in Bangalore, India.
Binj’s family and friends have launched an appeal for funds to cover the expected medical costs.
As Frankie Edozien said in an email, “Some of you know of his boundless kindness, some of you know just his work”.
We need Binyavanga to come through this and to come back to us.
Please consider donating any amount that you can spare to the Binyavanga Wainaina Medical Fund.
