KENYA

Kenya is a country that is often considered to be richer than it is. In reality the poverty is widespread and development is still far off. One of the worst afflictions is the diffusion of HIV/AIDS. In the region of Kajado, in the North, more than 50.000 people live with the tragedy of the illness. They are orphans, sick people, people with disabilities, or poor women unable to feed their children. We collaborate in sustenance and care with the Congregation of the Apostles of Jesus.
