It takes a village to raise a child. Although they grew up continents away from one another, Dr. Bonyo and LeBron James both reaped the benefits of growing up in a loving community. Both boys were shaped by role models, teachers and parents, and both boys made a PROMISE to their communities.
As men, they worked hard to make their PROMISES a reality. For Dr. Bonyo, that meant setting up a hospital in his Kenyan village. For LeBron, that meant creating the Wheels for Education program in Akron. Together, these men share a passion for kids and their Akron community.
Dr. Bonyo will be a special guest speaker for the Wheels for Ed kids at the LeBron James Family Foundation August 10 I PROMISE Family Reunion.
These trips occur once or twice per year and are a joint function of Bonyo's Kenya Mission and SHARE Kenya. SHARE Kenya is an Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine organization that uses this opportunity to help the under-served and promote international exposure of medical professionals from various schools.
Bonyo's Kenya Mission (formerly CARE KENYA Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by a concerned group of health care professionals from the Akron, Ohio area.
Bonyo's Kenya Mission is dedicated to improving the lives and healthcare of individuals residing in the rural Nyando District in Western Kenya. Medical and educational services will be provided through the Mama Pilista Bonyo Memorial Health Centre in the lovely village of Masara.
