This year, RSFH will refocus its efforts on Kenya with the goal of shipping approximately $150,000 of refurbished medical equipment and supplies to the Plateau Mission Hospital.
With your help, we can once again make a huge difference in the health and care of our friends living in the Plateau Community.
