The Luhya story, of which we are co-authors, had a very good beginning but somewhere along the course of time it become sad, and now it’s beginning to turn tragic. But the good news is that we still have the power to re-write this story and give it the happy ending it was always meant to have. We can re-write it by giving hope to the hopeless and help to the helpless.
Today people in Western Kenya are still dying from preventable disease and Halala has committed to do something about it by raising funds to provide a mobile clinic in the region.
A four-year project with a vision to raise $50,000 by 2009 will mark the begining of a long awaited medical facility to serve residents of Western Kenya. Residents will have access to, TB testing, Malaria, HIV 1 AND 2, Hep B &C, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, pregnancies, and also provide medication to those who cannot afford it.
Fundraising efforts to realize the above objective will be carried out by all Halala Chapters in the US.
Halala USA plans to conduct three fundraisers in the month of April in New Jersey, August in Maryland and November in Washington DC.
Members of Halala USA have committed to contribute $20.00 every month for 14 months and will be reaching out to friend and well-wishers to assist in these efforts. All contributions by checks should be made in the name of Halala USA and can be mailed to 390 Park Avenue East Orange New Jersey 07017
