On 25 April, the second DREAM centre in Kenya was inaugurated in Nairobi.
The centre is yet another fruit of the collaboration of the Community of Sant’Egidio with the Congregation of the Daughters of Charity. The Congregation has decided to commit in Kenya too, as it has already done in Nigeria, Cameroon, and Democratic Republic of Congo, to fight against AIDS together with the DREAM programme.
The new centre is situated alongside the Provincial House of the Vincentians, right in front of Kibera, the most notorious, largest, sprawling African slum. DREAM will be a close and friendly presence, a promise of treatment and an invitation to hope for the circa three million residents of this immense Kenyan slum settlement.
