On April 2nd a deadly terrorist attack on Garissa University College campus in Garissa, Kenya left 148 people dead, 142 of which were students.

Houses With Hope, a nonprofit that builds homes for orphaned children and disadvantaged families in Africa in conjunction with Living Legacy Institute and The Power Of Purpose are raising funds for an emergency relief effort for the families of the victims, the local community and Garissa University College in Kenya.

Proceeds of raised funds will go towards:

-Emergency Assistance 
-Medical Care
-Food, Clothing, Shelter and Supplies
-Providing Grief Counselors
-Student Relocation Efforts
-Emergency Housing For Families of the Victims
-Body Identification and Notification To Families
-Transportation, Burial and Funeral Costs
-Rebuilding and Repair of University

We want to show solidarity with the people of Kenya in the face of evil and terrorism. This is a demonstration of a united effort to show our support for the people of Kenya during their time of mourning.  Let's help comfort and console them during their unimaginable time of need.

Let's stand together! Let's be #United4Kenya!

Thank you for your support!

We want to thank everyone who has given to #United4Kenya so far. We are taking U.S. volunteer teams this summer to distribute clothes, bedding, and school supplies to the surviving students.

Since Garissa University is now closed the students have been transitioned to Moi University in El Doret, Kenya. They desperately still need our help and we hope everyone will get involved!

Hope everyone had a beautiful Mother's Day! We are still going strong promoting #United4Kenya. Despite rain, lightning, hail, and strong winds Shonna Jordan continues to raise money by living on top of a business. She sleeps in a tent in the middle of the hustle and bustle on Main Street in Farmington, NM. Our goal was to raise enough money so that she could come down for Mother's Day. Unfortunately we fell short of the goal. Shonna will continue to live on the roof until the money is raised. Thank you for your support!
