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!

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!
