BENEFITING: AFRICAN IMMIGRANT FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2013
Hello Family & Friends,
Starting this Friday, April 5th my birthday, I am running 5k's on every Friday in April to raise money for AIRF's Youth Artbeat Summer Camp. I am asking each of you to donate $10 dollars for my efforts.
You can also join me in the run by registering at https://www.signmeup.com/site/reg/register.aspx?fid=RT2VCJ7
I will post times of each run and give everyone feedback. Thanks for your support.
The African Immigrant and Refugee Foundation (AIRF) was founded in 2000 to facilitate the effective transition of African Immigrant to American society and to support their productive, sustainable integration into their new homeland.
The AIRF was born out of the influx of African refugees who may not have lived in urban Africa, let alone urban America. This influx is accelerated by economic and political wars which have produced unprecedented numbers of political and economic refugees. Being physically uprooted is traumatic and results in multiple suffering, isolation, loss, shock and a sense of hopelessness -often suffered over an extended period of time. As a mental Health professional, and an immigrant herself, Dr. Kamau founded the AIRF to become an oasis and a resource for the Africans who until today remain an enigma in the Western world.
