On Facebook, we asked for your comments on visiting the East Africa Mission Orphanage (EAMO) in Kenya. It's one of the highlights of any Gecko's trip to this part of the world, and gives you a chance to see the incredible work being done by owners Ralph and May Spinks.
There's over 200 kids at EAMO, and on our visits you'll get the chance to take a tour of the place and spend time with them. Just don't be too upset when they beat you at soccer!Read More
