"Got MILF?" supports KENWA

All proceeds from our upcoming show "Got MILF?" (May 9th!) will benefit KENWA, the Kenya Network of Women with AIDS.
Right now in Kenya, 1.8 million children orphaned by AIDS have been left bewildered and on their own. An entire generation of children is being raised by children, and every 14 seconds another one joins the ranks.
To 1700 of these children, KENWA is mother, provider, and protector. Hundreds of them line up at KENWA care centers for their daily porridge, a soupy blend of grains and fish. KENWA gives them clothes and shelter and provides them with counseling. Most importantly, KENWA gives them love.
School is the only structure in these children’s fractured lives, and education is the greatest weapon against HIV/AIDS. Therefore, KENWA supports 1028 children in school.
KENWA offers recovery to people with AIDS. It gives them vocational training and seed money so they can sell sundries to become financially independent.
KENWA is the sole thread to survival for 6951 people by providing the following:
  • Hot meals daily for 1700 orphans and 665 people who are bedridden.

  • Infant formula to prevent AIDS transmission to newborns from their mothers.

  • Medical services for 5384 people with AIDS and antiretroviral (ARV) therapy for 845.

  • Individual and group therapy for 5500 people affected by AIDS.

  • KENWA does all this with grants and private donations. It turns away no one, no matter how sick, no matter how poor. It’s committed to become a self-sustainable and replicable model for AIDS-based organizations worldwide by 2010.
