Pan African Rural Health and Social Services (PRHeSS) aids rural Africans in: maintaining clean drinking water; sanitary living conditions; poverty alleviation and opportunity through education. The group was founded by Chicago area physician Sam Kormoi and his wife, Mary. Dr. Kormoi pays close attention to his native Sierra Leone, a country devastated and traumatized by years of civil war. Dr. Kormoi, along with PRHeSS Board Director, Lesta Woods, will share stories about the people and communities they're helping to transform.

This Saturday May 4th, 2013, PRHeSS will sponsor a Walk-a-Thon of doctors and nurses for food, clothing, medical and school supplies for rural Africans.
