2021 Gathering to HEAL - Helping End AIDS in our Liftetime Breakfast: Saturday, October 30, at 9 a.m. at Hope UMC. Per Hope UMC's building use guidelines, all visitors must be vaccinated against COVID-19 and wear a mask while in the building, with the exception during times of eating and drinking.
We are pleased to welcome Ryan Silva, Cherry Creek School District Principal and winner of the Colorado 2021 High School Principal of the Year award, as our Keynote Speaker. Our Paul and Paula Murphy Human Sexuality Award Recipient will be announced soon! Join us for an inspirational message, uplifting music, and delicious food.
This event helps raise funds to support 361 HIV orphans in Kenya. The children live with elderly grandparents, distant relatives or guardians--impoverished but caring persons. The funds we raise provide help with their school fees, supplement food, and provide other urgent needs like clothing and even help with improved shelter.
During this COVID-19 crisis, children have missed school for sustained periods of time. Virtual learning was an impossibility. Now the Kenya government is adding a fourth term for two years in an attempt to help the youth "catch up." This means more school fees per child and the Center is attempting to support the children at a level of $250 rater than $200 a year--a total of about $90,000. Please help us ensure another year of education, care, and safety for each child.
