SOS Children's Villages Kenya to open social and medical centre in Nairobi

14/08/2003 - With one of the highest rates of population growth in the world, 50% of the population living on less than a dollar a day, and 700 people dying daily from HIV/AIDS, Kenya needs all the help it can get. Later this month, SOS Children's Villages will open a community, social and medical centre that will provide healthcare and education to impoverished youngsters.
