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. One of the oldest refugee settlements in Uganda, Nakivale is a refugee resettlement camp in Isingiro District where 60,000 refugees live with limited services and resources. Faziri Ndahiro, former refugee and founder-president of RGRS, will speak about what is needed to complete the last phase of the organization's Corn Mill Grinder Project. 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.

The "Giving the Gift of Life" fundraiser will take place Thursday, December 20, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Partners+Napier, 192 Mill Street. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. $25; RSVP at eventbrite.com. Email Ifunanya Dallah at ifd4ah@virginia.edu or Faziri Ndahiro at ndahirof@gmail.com with questions.
