Volunteer Spotlight: Mercy Wanjiru

Project Sunshine Volunteer - Mercy Wanjiru

Each day, in Mombasa, Kenya, Project Sunshine volunteer Mercy Wanjiru makes an an impact on children living with HIV/AIDS. As a Project Sunshine volunteer at Bomu Medical Center, Mercy does double duty, volunteering both on-site with patients as they wait to be treated by doctors and off-site, through the Healthy Living Initiative, to assess patient's living environments and issue supplies. For Mercy, Project Sunshine is about more than just bettering the lives of patients, it's her chance to better her community as a whole.
