Central Michigan University psychology graduate Olivia Jenkins headed to Kenya with her roommates after graduation in May to help serve HIV patients and orphans. The experience has changed their lives.
Jenkins, a Sanford native, had studied abroad in Maseno, Kenya, in May 2013. Her roommates, St. Joseph senior Josh Wessel and Saginaw graduate Hesham Salman, joined her when she returned a year later to the Maseno Mission Hospital. The three Chippewas served the hospital in various ways ranging from information technology work to assisting in the labor ward.
