for the People

of Africa


Mostforeigners think of safaris

and wildlife


whenthey think of Africa


Yet 60% of Kenyans live below the poverty line


in rural areas


and city slums


barely surviving


on a $1.00 a day.


It’s no wonder


that disease is rampant


and conventional medicines too expensive for most people.
