$25 can support our feeding programs and provide immunizations for the vulnerable children in CFK Africa’s nutrition program for 1 month. $50 can provide a family of 3 with food for a month. $100 can provide handwashing stations for households. $500 will allow CFK Africa to expand medical services and take health care beyond the walls of our clinics and into the community through the work of 50 trained Community Health Volunteers.

With only $26, CFK Africa co-founder Tabitha Festo, built a business and used her earnings to open a community health clinic. The clinic was attached to Tabitha’s home because, as she said, people don’t stop getting sick at night. The purpose of the clinic was to provide necessary health care services to all who were in need; no one would be turned away. Tabitha’s Clinic has become the backbone of CFK Africa and a great example of the impact of $26.
