The IU community is supporting Garissa students affected by the April 2015 terrorist attack

Thursday, June 25, 2015

Indiana University and the AMPATH Consortium have raised more than $4,000 to support the Garissa students who are now completing their semester at the main campus of Moi University.

On June 17, 2015, Dr. Bob Einterz, Director of the IU Center for Global Health, presented Moi University Vice-Chancellor Richard Mibey with a check for approximately $4,000.   

After their finals, students will be allowed to choose which Moi University campus they wish to attend. In the meantime, they are receiving counseling in small groups through which individuals who are more traumatized are identified and counseled individually.

Garissa University College is a branch of Moi University, one of IUPUI’s key partners. IUPUI’s relationship with Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya, dates back to 1989, when the IU School of Medicine began collaboration with Moi University’s Teaching and Referral Hospital.
