SPECIAL EVENT | 'Giving the Gift of Life' fundraiser 

This week Rochester Global Refugee Services will host a fundraising event, "Giving the Gift of Life," in support of families living in Uganda's Nakivale refugee camp.

The initiative has so far raised funds to purchase a corn mill machine and construct a shelter to house the machine for the Nakivale camp.
