On Tuesday, the Nyange Medical Post in Kibeho, Rwanda, had its grand opening, bringing much-needed medical care to the African community.

Funds for the clinic were raised through All Day FORE Africa, a non-profit organization started in 2010 through the efforts of Worthington’s Kate Lesnar, then a high school student, who raised money by playing a marathon round of golf — enough to build a water system in Kibeho.

Kate’s idea took root, and the golfing event is now an annual undertaking in Worthington, and other ADFA fundraisers take place throughout the year locally and across the country. An ADFA mission trip to Kibeho is planned for this summer, so ADFA volunteers will get to see the clinic firsthand.
