New partnership announced with Mapendo International
Jan 29, 2010 by Rosemary Jones
GreaterGood.org's first new charity partner for 2010 is
Mapendo International Inc.
Mapendo International's Urban Refugee Health Program works to assist those refugees who have fled into the slums of cities, those who are most often overlooked by other aid programs.Mapendo means "great love" in Swahili. Mapendo's social workers staff find the worst-off refugees -- the vast
majority are women and children --
provide them with comprehensive care, including medical consultations,
HIV/AIDS care and treatment, counseling, livelihood assistance, and
placement into safe shelters for refugee orphans at immediate risk of
abduction or attack.
