Congressman King Introduces America to “Tanzania’s Miracle Kids”
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve King released the following Special Order speech, in which he took to the floor of the House of Representatives to introduce America to “Tanzania’s Miracle Kids.” The “Miracle Kids,” Wilson, Sadia, and Doreen, are the only survivors of a horrible bus accident which killed 36 people on May 6. The children’s lives were saved through the combined efforts of many people, including Congressman King, Dr. Steve Meyer of Sioux City, Rev. Franklin Graham of the Christian relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse, and missionaries Kevin Negaard, Jennifer Milby, and Manda Volkert of the Siouxland Tanzania Educational Medical Ministries. “Tanzania’s Miracle Kids” are currently recuperating from their injuries in Sioux City, Iowa, where they have been receiving care through Mercy Hospital.
“We join together in these efforts when we can be Americans and reach out with the American heart and spirit and help others when they are in dire need.”
