In 2016 a collaboration began between Daylight Director Michael Kimpur and U of M professor and celebrated Chris Larson. Working with Chris, Michael and the Daylight team began phase one of construction of a new community clinic in Kapenguria, Kenya.
Since the completion of basic construction, the facility has been used to treat over 5,400 children and adults from the Daylight Center School and surrounding communities.
Over the last 4 years, Kenyan and American healthcare providers have worked together to provide quality healthcare to the students and community members. Services continue to include full health screenings, wellness checks and physicals, malaria treatments, eye care, and the distribution of medical supplies.
Final construction, which we are hoping to conclude at the end of 2020, consists of completing windows, plumbing and supplying electricity to the building. Our fundraising goal to complete the building is $25,000.
This effort is being put forth at a time when all have been in the precipitating world-wide effects of COVID-19.
Chris Larson has spent his career exploring the ways humans interact with homes. From the frozen winters of Minnesota, to the lakes, to the deep woods, humans find a way to survive and thrive. We are excited to build a house of healing for hundreds of children and families in rural Kenya.
