WISER leads fundraising efforts for victims of political violence

As a demonstration of its continued dedication to Kenya in the face of recent conflict, WISER led fundraising efforts to support those suffering from political violence in the country. WISER at Duke members sold water bottles reading “Duke loves Kenya” to raise money for the Makina Clinic in Nairobi.

Founded by Andrew Otieno and located in Kibera, East Africa’s largest slum, the clinic serves all members of the Kibera community, particularly those affected by violence following the December elections.

WISER also collected donations for the Young Women’s Leadership Institute through Violet Barasa, who is working to bring essential supplies to displaced people in refugee camps throughout Kenya.
