Project C.U.R.E. and the Nairobi Committee

The Nairobi Committee is proud to share its recent support of the shipment of a container of medical supplies to Kitale, Kenya. In partnership with the international organizations IRD and Project C.U.R.E., the Nairobi Committee donated $1,000 to help fund the shipment of a full 40-foot container of over $300,000 in medical supplies to Sister Freda’s Medical Centre in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. This community hospital serves over 500,000 Kenyans from the surrounding villages and informal settlements. With one doctor and five nurses on staff, the hospital served 1,200 patients and 3,600 outpatients in 2011.  Pictured is Ron Cummings, past President of Denver Sister Cities, taking a photo break from loading boxes
