The Segera Mission has been serving orphans and families living in poverty in Kenya for many years. I am honored to be part of this organization and have learned so much on many trips to Africa. Since 2005, we have been able to provide financial and physical assistance to the people of Kenya by supporting the Segera Mission. I cannot imagine a more worthwhile organization to be involved with."
