Benefit Concert

Under blue lighting inside the church with fabric around the open sides creating a cozy atmosphere, the youth of Kasana organized a benefit concert for Aunt Ketty Okoth’s treatment. On August 22 the attendees raised over 600,000 Ugandan Shillings for her ongoing treatment.

As of last week, Aunt Ketty’s treatment has shifted to Kampala. After many prayers, conversations, and research, the Okoths and the team at Kasana coordinating to manage her care found a doctor in Kampala willing to administer her chemo. He is a kind Christian man and arranged for her to begin treatment with the most up-do-date chemotherapy protocol for esophageal cancer. We rejoice that she can receive this caliber of care while staying with her family!
