Rotary clubs in the Southeast have supported the rev Ken Berkin who has been helping orphans in the Ugandan township of Kigezi for several years.

Recently our club gave him £600 towards building a clinic and on October 6th 2014 Ken visited our club with Rachel Harris his chairman of trustees to tell us of the latest developments in its construction and show us how our contribution had been spent.

Kigezi is in an area known as Little Switzerland and lies “beyond the tarmac” way out in the bush at the western end of the African Rift Valley.

Southeast Rotary club’s support is helping Ken’s charity “The Friends of Kigezi” who have worked tirelessly to bring water, education and sanitation to the local families and children in temperatures of up to 42 degrees.
