Nebraska: AIDS Organization Raises Money for African Orphanages

February 11, 2003

In Lincoln, Neb., Sunday, nearly 300 people turned out for a $10-a-ticket educational night organized by a local organization trying to help AIDS-stricken Africa. Since bringing U2 rock star Bono and actress Ashley Judd to Lincoln in December to highlight the needs of African AIDS patients, Save Sub-Saharan Orphans has raised more than $5,000. Nelson Okuku Miruka, the group's president, will travel later this month to Kenya to build a temporary orphanage that will house 30-50 children. Money raised Sunday will go toward the group's goal of raising $100,000 to build a larger orphanage on the same site.
