Yesturday, November 8th, was a big and important day for Lööf Foundation and Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation as it was the inauguration of the Maternity & Health Center they were building near Nairobi in Kenya, close to the Kenswed Academy.
« Five years ago this was just a piece of farm land in Ngong Hills, outside Nairobi. Today the land houses a school for 300 children who wouldn’t have had a hard time at home, a maternity clinic for anyone in the area in need of medical care and a well giving 600 households fresh water. Outside the school the community is growing (…). We have created a village! I’m so proud to take my son here today and show him what we have accomplished, thanks to all of you who contributed the last couple of years. And it doesn’t end here! Let’s continue to build similar Kenswed communities all over the world, and follow the children all the way from their early teens into employment. That way we believe that, in time, our former students will want to give back to their community and give even more children the right to education. Thank you everyone supporting Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation« , writes Måns on Instagram at the end of the day.
