SEE THE FULL STORY

Our goal
We want all 96 youth at Rehema Home in Kenya to receive medical care and medication.
The Challenge

No cash? No health insurance? No medical care. No medication.

At Rehema Home, we currently care for 96 babies, toddlers, kids, teens, and young adults between our two children's homes in Kenya. Many in our care are HIV-positive, and some come to us sick, neglected, malnourished, or abused. When our youth need routine or emergency medical care or medication, we want to make sure they receive it when they need it. Oftentimes in Kenya, money for medical care must be paid upfront and oftentimes without the help of health insurance.

Our Solution

We created the Harry Kimanzi Emergency Medical Fund to help cover the cost of medical expenses.

We're proactively building up our medical fund (much like a health savings account) so we can cover all of our medical expenses. On May 26, 2015, one of our beloved young adults, Harry Kimanzi, died unexpectedly due to cardiac complications. Harry was selfless, resilient, and joyful even when experiencing major health setbacks. In honor of his memory, we've chosen to name our medical fund after him. Watch his story below:
