Movember - @care_forkenya

This movember I've decided to really knuckle down and help out someone in need. My friend Jess Scaletti has gone above and beyond to provide aid and opportunity for displaced refugees in Kenya, all on her own. What she is doing is massive, and I urge everyone who can, to help out in whatever way possible. Movember is just the start for my support to this cause with big plans for the future. I can't thank you all enough for your donations and support. Please take a minute to read Jess' story and get behind this cause. Every donation will make a huge difference. ❤️

"My name is Jess and in 2015 I began volunteering for a variety of underprivileged people within Kenya, Africa. I was working with abused women and children, refugees, street kids and at a camp that holds over 4,500 internally displaced persons. In 2015, after 6 months of fundraising, we managed to raise over $17,000 to help these people. The 2007 post election riots left thousands of Kenyans homeless and traumatised by what they saw and experienced. The riots turned into the killing of over 1200+ people, and 500,000+ displaced persons. I was volunteering at a camp that holds >4,500 of these internally displaced persons and have personally witnessed the struggles that these people are going through. As they lack any medical support, supplies or funding within the camp, this year, our goal is to build them a HIV/medical clinic!Initially we will be building it as a clinic for HIV positive people and from there, applying for appropriate permits to practice medicine within the clinic. Our starting budget for the building is around $24,000. It will have 6 rooms and a waiting room. Once that is underway we will begin budgeting for what is needed inside the clinic. This is a massive project, but after having personally seen how much these people are suffering - it is very needed and worth it!If you would like to contact me, please do so via the 'Care for Kenya' Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/Care-for-Kenya-616499821827561/?ref=bookmarks...Where you can also stay up to date with what is being done for these people as well as the clinic's progress!I would love to hear from you! Thank you for reading this and for your donations! It is all greatly appreciated by myself and thousands of underprivileged people in Kenya. Let's do this!"
