Support Refugee Children in Kenya

You are cordially invited to the United Nations Association of Northern Colorado Annual Meeting and Luncheon on Saturday February 25 at the Christ Methodist Church, 301 East Drake Road starting with a pot luck lunch at 11:30. This meeting is the kick-off event for the UNA's Adopt a Refugee School fundraising campaign. If you just want to hear our speaker and support our campaign please come at 1:00.

UNA-USA, in tandem with the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), is working to prevent a lost generation by giving refugee children the education they need to build a better future. UNA-NoCO is raising funds for the Kakuma School in Dadaab Refugee Camp, Kenya.

Our GUEST SPEAKER, Mohamed Abdi Sanweyne, was born in Somalia. His family fled from there in 1991 because of the civil war. They lived in the refugee camp in Dadaab, Kenya for 16 years before being resettled in the United States. Mohamed trained as a medical carrier and now works with Lutheran Family Services as a Refugee Case Manager.
