It’s Fall - the perfect time of year to raise tuition funds for aspiring nursing students in D.R. Congo! On November 1st, a lively crowd of wine enthusiasts gathered at Alderton House to enjoy Sommelier Elisa Cry'e’s entertaining wine presentation before sampling the fine vintages with paired food tastings. Generous donors pulled out their phones and wallets to give more than $7,700. The funds will help the nurse students advance another semester in their pursuit of Bachelor degrees. In impoverished D.R. Congo, where healthcare spending is less than $25 per person, the graduates will have a tremendous impact on their communities.
We thank our generous donors and benefactors, and we’re just $10,000 short of our $56,000 goal to cover four years’ tuition for all 10 students. With everyone’s help, we hope to reach the finish line soon!
