Ralph Stroup (MD) writes that he’s been working in Kenya, helping to build a primary care infrastructure since 2008 through the nonprofit Kenyan Health Care Initiatives, which he founded with the advice of local Maasai leaders. He sends an update: “Thanks, in part, to donations from some of my classmates, funds have been raised to build a health clinic in Ntalabany, Kenya. Currently, the 1,500-plus villagers in the area have to walk six hours to obtain primary health care.” Ralph will continue to raise funds for capital equipment, solar lighting, solar refrigeration, and a drip irrigation green house for food security. He adds: “Our Maasai partners plan to build a nurse’s quarters and a preschool. Hope to see all of you in October for our 50th reunion!”
