The Gordons & The Dust Covers
We, Gary and Roberta Gordon formed our mission in 2011 when our friend and neighbor Vic Hamer came to our music store selling African jewelry. There was no turning back when we saw the tears in his eyes. Give Me Water Lord is a tiny totally non-profit organization with only 6 board members who are self-appointed servants of humanity. There is absolutely no middle man, any and all kind donations of directly to drill water wells in desperate areas in Kenya. Drilling can exceed 300 feet through granite with average cost of $25,000.00 for drill bits, casing, pump and protective well house. Vic Hamer personally oversees the drilling to insure no funding is misused. Give Me Water Lord was recognized by the Federal government to be tax exempt and through kind donations we have drilled wells in Kasarani (2012), Kisumu (2013), Kitengela (2014) and Kima (2016).
In 2014 we also began a Dairy Cow Project buying a pregnant cow giving to a school who cares for the cow. The school can use the milk and also sell it to cover school fees for orphans or handicapped children. The calf when born is then given to another school. A childrens feeding program was started in 2015 where 250 children receive one meal a day. There are countless orphans. Some parents simply cannot care for them and give them to orphanages. In 2015 a School Sponsorship Program was started to pay school fees for 23 children since that time. We provide corn shellers, inoculate cattle and help anyone in our path when on well drilling missions. Everyone in Kenya is in need but we can help many with clean water. Please help us drill our next 2 wells in Narok and Ambosela in the next 2 years hopefully.
Sincerely, Gary and Roberta Gordon
Influenced by the great music of their era, this husband and wife duo were baptized by bluegrass music and have made wonderful folk music ever since. Accompanied by Garys tasteful Gallagher guitar and dobro Roberta plays the American born Appalachian Autoharp. With many recordings to their credit since 1976 harmony singing is their signature.
The Dust Covers:
With the tempo of a train, the chill of its breeze, and the rumble of its momentum this locomotive of a of a band summons the excitement and energy of early blues and old-time. On the life long journey of finding and sharing, not only the intersection but, the road shared by these two genres The Dust Covers harken to sounds pre-recorded music. Their ruckus resonators and gentle touch weave splendidly through their vocals and harmonies.
