Please help us support the children of Ubuntu Life Foundation through this 'ungala' celebration. While we would love to be able to celebrate with our community in person, that's not going to be possible this year so we hope that you can support us in this way.
Never before has the true meaning of Ubuntu - the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity - been so apparent than during this unprecedented global crisis. Through this virtual fundraiser, we are fighting to ensure that all children have a place to turn and that the cycle of poverty doesn't prevent a child from having a childhood.
- ABOUT HEAL KENYA -
HEAL Kenya stands for Health Education Alliance for Life created as a partnership between Austin area pediatric sub-specialists and nurses and the Ubuntu Life Foundation to promote health and wellness to children in rural Kenya. The HEAL Kenya community continues to support the health initiative by organizing teams of pediatric medical and specialty providers who travel to Kenya on scheduled trips providing medical care to the vulnerable children in the Great Rift Valley. We work to empower the areas medical providers through collaboration and education.
- THE COVID PIVOT -
In 2020 when the Ubuntu Children’s Wellness Centre opens, it will form a regional hub for pediatric subspecialty referrals and health education. For now though, construction is paused, we are unable to send teams to Kenya to treat patients most in need, and the price of critical medications is spiking and they are become more and more scarce.
- OUR GOAL -
Our goal is to raise enough through our generous HEAL community to pre-purchase medications and supplies to be used at the October medical camp which will serve 300 children in our pediatric program. If we hit $20,000, it will completely cover the cost of these supplies and running the clinic to make sure that these patients have access to consistent care during these uncertain times.
Also, please know that if you would like to give through check, a personal foundation or donor advised fund, just let us know. It will still count toward our goal.
