The Ruben Centre, Mukuru Slum Nairobi.

 It costs about $850,000 a year to run the Ruben Centre in Nairobi's infamous Mukuru slum. This money goes to running a primary school, (2,700 children with 60 teachers, all fed daily), a medical centre, (85,000 treatments a year), a vocational training centre, a special needs unit, a radio station, a sustainable urban market garden and so much more. On Wednesday 16th May one of Ruben's greatest supporters, The 500 Supporters' Group, will hold its annual lunch at the MCG. Its great to be asked to donate a print of an image I made in the maternity clinic last year. Hopefully Melbourne's business community will be tempted to bid big and often!
