The Center for Health and Hope will use funds raised at the annual Gathering To HEAL Breakfast to reach out to help Kenya’s impoverished children and adolescents. Many are unable to attend school, because they have lost their parents to HIV or are too poor to pay the fees. 


 “Children and youth are often overlooked during the global AIDS pandemic,” notes the Center’s Executive Director, Don Messer.  “Many lack schooling and are exceedingly vulnerable to infection from HIV.  Around the world an adolescent girl acquires HIV every two minutes.”
