Members of one of Milton’s newest clubs, WHO (World Health Organization), met with Mr. Sasha Chanoff, executive director of Mapendo International, to present his organization with a check for $1,750 on June 2. The Mapendo Clinic in Nairobi, Kenya cares for HIV-infected refugees, and students allocated the majority of the funds WHO raised in the last two months for that cause. Christy Hong (Class III) began the World Health Organization at Milton earlier this spring. As she explains, “although we are independent financially and otherwise, we share the same objectives as the World Health Organization of the United Nations.” The young club already has nearly 30 members and seven board members whose first topic of discussion and action was HIV and AIDS.
