    be able to work with dynamic creative and energetic people like Marion Bunch And also to be able to work with and serve the communities infected and affected by HIV In Kenya all of us know someone who is HIV positive We see children every day that are poor and in need of love care education and support It s not only the children that need care and support but their caretakers as well We constantly look for creative solutions to meet the needs around us there are so many I have the privilege to know Reagan and many of the children and young people that help with the work in the informal settlements of Nairobi They are like any other child They have vision dreams and desire for a better life Currently RFFA has raised USD 45 000 that is being used to help pay for education support for children in Mathare Slums in Nairobi Kenya Though primary education is free there are still costs associated with education which makes it difficult for children to be in school Things such as uniforms books school supplies tuition basic health care and disease prevention and other school levies not supported by the government Secondary School High School is NOT free and the cost is beyond what those living in informal settlements can afford And though USD 45 000 is a lot of money it s just a drop in the ocean compared to the needs of over one million children in Kenya alone BUT it s a GREAT start and the children and communities are so grateful I am also a Rotarian in the Rotary Club of Nairobi RFFA along with this club and with HOPE worldwide Kenya is pioneering the way forward in developing a Rotary model that will build

    minds is geography Our son was fortunate enough to be born in North America and as such he hasn t had to suffer and struggle to survive the way Reagan has each day of his life To loose your parents through AIDS is something no child should have to endure Let alone 12 million My husband and I had the good fortune to meet Marion in Chicago when Rotary celebrated 100 years She was so inspiring that my husband and I happily joined RFFA We have witnessed the incredible difference that Rotary can accomplish through it s many programs such as the work done with Polio Plus For some time we had desired to make a contribution towards the fight against aids in Africa To that end I am proud to share that my husband Wayne volunteered in a medical mission to Nairobi in September 2008 It s possible Wayne might even have encountered Reagan without knowing it The experience was life changing for our whole family and we have been deeply touched by the children of Africa In video footage he brought home we were able to hear the melodic voices of the children saying How are you how are you as they ran beside the shuttle making it s way through the slum It s remarkable to witness the smiles and hope filled faces of these children who have nothing but demonstrate their simple joy to be alive Experiences like that create a very humbling perspective indeed Especially when so many people we encounter in our daily lives take for granted their privileged lives and rarely share their joy openly with others We are so proud of the work RFFA is accomplishing and await the next opportunity to push up our sleeves and help the children of Africa

    behalf of those suffering from AIDS While participating in the medical mission there were opportunities to visit voluntary counseling and testing clinics This program brings these services to people in the slums eliminating the need to travel to a medical facility Travel in Kenya as in many parts of the developing world is not easy The rapid testing component of the program gives the participant their HIV status during an on site visit allowing immediate further counseling consistent with their condition AIDs is a totally preventable disease and such counseling and testing can do much to reduce its spread A YouTube video on this trip can be found at http www youtube com profile user ericson35 p u 7 NY4GiHxN7MY As a personal note while participating in a Rotary polio immunization program in Dhaka Bangladesh in 2007 I visited a women s clinic in the middle of a slum It was very pleasing to see that they were using an inexpensive HIV rapid test developed by one of my groups in Massachusetts It is currently being sold by Trinity Biotech to practitioners in developing countries around the world Such tests are created in laboratories far from the end users and

    is no exaggeration Just take a look at the results to date from Rotary s Polio Eradication initiative The seemingly impossible has been made possible thanks to Rotarians and their partners working together This brings me to Reagan s Pledge The hard truth is HIV AIDS is a fact of life I rarely meet a Rotarian who does not know of someone who has AIDS or has died from it So HIV AIDS is an issue that most readily understand Even so when one considers the millions of innocent children who are victims of the consequences of AIDS such as the 12 million orphans in Africa the reality of HIV AIDS becomes a heart wrenching moment of truth This is where Rotarians step in and Take Action This where Rotarians For Fighting AIDS RFFA a leading Rotarian Action Group is making a powerful impact It is potentially changing the world for good For sure RFFA is changing the lives of children such as Reagan Onjiju of Kenya Ultimately it can change forever the lives of millions To understand how this can be just watch the powerful story shared by Marion Bunch in the YouTube video Reagan s Dream With this
