We extend a warm and appreciative Thank You to all of you who attended this year's fundraising event in support of the women of Asembo Bay as well as our orphans and students. For those who continue to assist HERA Mission but couldn't make it to this year's festivities, here are a few glimpses of the evening. We look forward to seeing you all in next year's photos.

The Ottawa Redblacks scored extra points at TD Place Stadium on Wednesday and they weren’t even on the field.
Rather, the new CFL team co-hosted a charity gala in aid of widows and orphans devastated by disease and poverty in western Kenya.
At first, it was just a puff of dust in the distance, a sign that a vehicle was headed their way.
But as the dust cloud grew, so did the excitement amongst the gathered women and children in Asembo Bay, a village of about 850 families on the shores of Lake Victoria in western Kenya.
