Hello friends and family,
I am going to swim across the Boston Harbor on Friday (October 7) to commute to work and raise money for a great group working in Kenya, the Nareto Group. I will be joined by my friend Brian who will kayak alongside me waving the Kenyan flag!
Please support me by making a donation in any amount to sponsor my swim! Here is some more information about the Nareto Group:
The Nareto Group is an organization raising funds for AIC Health Ministries in Kenya. The funds are used to improve health services for the people of Kajiado District in Kenya. All funds raised from my swim will go to the AIC Kajiado Dispensary in Kajiado, Kenya. The funds will be used for renovation/additions to the dispensary to allow the facility to open a maternity ward. In the rural interior of Kajiado district, Maasai women usually give birth at home, often under the guidance of a traditional birth attendant. When complications arise during childbirth, it is often difficult to get mother and child access to lifesaving emergency care and services. The addition of a maternity ward at AIC Kajiado will contribute greatly to decreased maternal and infant mortality rates in Kajiado and the surrounding communities. Learn more at www.naretogroup.org
