Over $100,000 Raised for AIDS Orphans

Three hundred supporters of the Nyumbani Orphanage filled the East Hall of Union Station for a fundraising dinner on September 19. Kathleen Matthews of WJLA-Channel 7 presided as Master of Ceremonies and the Urban Nation H.I.P.H.O.P. Gospel Choir provided the evening's entertainment. The Reverend William L. George, S.J., President of Georgetown Preparatory School, was honored for seven years of fundraising service to the orphanage. Founded by a Georgetown University Jesuit, the Reverend Angelo D'Agostino, S.J., M.D., Nyumbani is the first hospice for HIV positive orphans in Kenya where the number of children who are orphaned by the AIDS virus has reached pandemic proportions. The event netted over $ 100,000 and will allow Nyumbani to expand its facilities and serve more children.
