Make a Dream Come True - Upendo Gala 2018
According to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), there were over 2.6 million orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya as of 2012. This number has gone up since and has been attributable to HIV/AIDS, poverty, and lack of medical resources to take care of these children. Something must be done to reverse the devastating impact on a child’s life when he/she grows up without the love and guidance of a parent or guardian.
On Saturday, March 31st, Make a Dream Come True Upendo gala takes over the Skirvin Hilton Hotel banquet hall, giving foundations, corporations, families, and individuals a unique and inspiring way to be part of the solution. This fun and enlightening event raises funds to support Upendo Kids programs that are having a tangible impact on the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya.
