Good Guy Omari

Was just reading about this on Reddit.

Quote:
Meet Omari. Two days ago he returned from the hospital after being hacked in the face by a machete defending an orphanage of 35 children by himself. Think we could raise the $2,000 needed for the remainder of the cement/barbed wire wall to keep both him and the children safe?

Pretty cool to see how many people are opening up their hearts, and their wallets, to help him and the orphanage out.

(I linked the pic instead of showing on here because for some reason it would blow up to a huge resolution)

What a brave dude...

I can only hope I have the balls to step up and defend others should something like this happen in my life...

Huge respect.

$65,000 was raised in 24 hours

Quote:
that there had been intruders two previous nights at the the Faraja Orphanage in Ngong, Kenya. When Omari had chased them out by throwing a hammer and hitting one of them, their next intrusion became personal:

"The following night, the three thugs returned, presumably to avenge their friend. Omari put up a fight but was outnumbered. The last thing he remembers was being struck in the face by the machete. He has been in and out of the hospital since, yet remains positive and confident that the suspects will one day see justice.”
