Matching-gift-sealnodollarsred.png

To help 361 AIDS orphans in Kenya this year, an out-of-state donor has offered the largest challenge grant the Center for Health and Hope has ever received:  $20,361.  Justin Levy, brunch MC, announced that the first $2,500 toward the challenge grant would be contributed by his family through the Raphael Levy Memorial Foundation.    Friends attending the Spring is a Time For H.O.P.E, Brunch April 23, stepped up immediately with a total giving of $13,200.  Can you help me find donors to match the remaining $7,161? 

Overall, we need to raise $72,200 every year, so by matching this gift we will be more than halfway there.  If you want to participate in the challenge, make a gift using the link below, or send a check  to 7185 S Niagara Circle, Centennial, CO 80112.  Wow!   What a wonderful challenge—and thanks to all the donors who help us meet it!

Let’s Help Twice As Many Young Women in 2022!

Last year we provided sanitary supplies for 120 girls for an entire year

In 2022 let’s assist 240 young women!

We have raised $5,100 so far—can you help us reach at least $6,000?

For a one-time donation of $25.00 young women receive sanitary supplies for an entire year, along with 2 pairs of underwear. Exploited and endangered, consequences include increased pregnancy and HIV infection as girls seek money whatever way they can to meet the basic need for sanitary supplies.

 

Social worker Glorie Gitonga says, "With great joy we extend our sincere appreciation to all who supported the poor school-going girls in our HIV & AIDS program. Below are images taken recently during the sanitary supplies distribution."

One of our program partners in Kenya, Social Worker Jennifer Murithi writes,

 

"I am so grateful on behalf of the caregivers for the relief food you gave them!  Yesterday, we distributed food to sixty families, targeting the remote areas- each benefitting as follows:

 

4 Kg of beans, 5 kg of rice, 4 packets of maize flower, 1 liter of cooking oil.  This package will carry each family for two to three weeks (depending on the size of the family)."

Thank you for making this food relief delivery and distribution possible. To support this ongoing need, click the action button.
