Update from Lwala, Kenya

BIY got a note from Milton Ochieng after our feature on him this past Sunday.  The clinic has opened and been a great help to the community, but there is still much to be done. 

Here is the note from Milton:
“Thanks for featuring our project. We have made quite some progress, but with a lot of support from many young people. I just included some more websites that might give you a sense of what we have done and what else is still to be done.”

An excerpt from the first site:
“During the first three months of operations (April-June 2007) the Lwala Community Clinic saw a total of 1854 new patients with nearly 60% of those patients being children under the age of five; approximately 13% more new patients each month.”
