On James’ wall are testimonials from people whose hearts he touched with his initiative.

“I can’t thank you enough James. You kept me from going to the hospital and you saved my life,” wrote Tina Durkin, a beneficiary.

Anderson has been a plumber for more than two decades, a period in which he took it upon himself to take care of the vulnerable by providing free services.

His resolution was informed by an incident he witnessed where an elderly man was swindled out of 5,500 pounds (819,000 Ksh) for repairs he did not need.
