The Great Lakes region has its fair share of bad news. In DRC, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and South Sudan most news is dominated by dictators maneuvering to cling to power.
Here comes Kenya.
In the ongoing Global Fund Replenishment meeting taking place in Montreal, Canada, the Government of Kenya has pledged US$5 million. Great news and good example.
As a Rwandan-Canadian, I am also pleased that the Justin Trudeau government has pledged US$785 million, a 20 per cent increase from its previous commitment.
Trudeau is hosting the replenishment conference to help to raise US$13 billion. It is estimated that such amount would save eight million people while preventing 300 million new infections by 2019.
