Hundreds Celebrate Launch of HealthRight's New Name in Kenya

On February 23, 2009, HealthRight staff, partners, and local community members gathered in Kenya’s Northern Rift Valley to celebrate the launch of HealthRight International’s new name. 

The celebration included a parade from Kapenguria to Makutano, performances by musicians and dancers, and loads of excitement as the local community gathered to celebrate the progress made in improving the access to health for local communities since HealthRight began working in Kenya in 2005. 

Below are some photographs from this exciting event:
