KWU Liberian Project

Salina, Kan. – Kansas Wesleyan University continues to raise money for the Liberian Project. On Thursday, November 29, KWU students will host a raffle during the men’s and women’s home basketball games. 

Last year’s successful fundraising effort is saving lives in Liberia. KWU sent nearly $8,000 to the women of Liberia for sewing machines and to Tiyatien Health, a clinic that provides health care for the people of Liberia.

Donations this year will go towards splitting the funds 50/50; half towards Liberia and the other half towards Tiyatien Health.  For Liberia, monies will help create a soccer program and to help cover uniforms for the 100% increase of children attending school - in the school KWU helped build with donations from previous Liberian efforts.

The raffle prizes are items donated by area businesses including Diamaru Japanese Steakhouse, Mokas, Tucson’s, Mary Kay, Showplex Cinema, Martinelli’s Little Italy, Upper Cut Salon, and many more.  The winners will be drawn Friday, December 7, and will be contacted by phone.

Over the last three years, KWU students have raised nearly $25,000 for the country of Liberia through various events. For more information about either event or to donate, please contact Paul Hedlund at paul.hedlund@kwu.edu.
