"This national tour will allow the Lusi's to meet with the volunteers who have supported HEAL Africa, and to share best practices with the hope that they will help these communities lighten many of their own social and health challenges."

  • San Francisco: October 1-October 3 - special fundraiser with partner International Pediatric Outreach Project, an organization that sends hundreds of SF-based volunteers to work in Congo
