Oct 5th Benefit Social raised Scholarship for 5 Nursing Students

Harambee USA Foundation’s Nursing Scholarship Program hosted a fund-raiser on Oct. 5, 2018 at Alderton House, NYC to support ten nursing students in D.R. Congo’s Monkole Hospital Nursing school. The event attracted many professionals from the medical field, including four nursing leaders from Mount Sinai Hospital, as they felt a solidarity with the nursing students in D.R. Congo. Nurse Practitioner and Harambee Board member, Johanna Valiquette, who is spearheading the efforts, presented a compelling story showing videos and photos of the Nursing school and the 10 nursing students who rely on the generosity of donors and supporters here in the US. The evening secured funding to cover 1 year’s tuition for 5 of the 10 students. The program has raised half of the $56,000 goal which covers 4 years of scholarship for 10 students at $1,400 per year per student. We invite supporters to continue to join us in this worthy mission. Harambee!
