Auburn, WA -- Ekene A. Amaefule, or Kennie as she is popularly known, learned a lot of valuable lessons from her parents. Perhaps more important than anything else, Kennie’s parents taught her to be a philanthropist—to take care of the other children who had less privilege, little food or clothes, or looked sickly.
Kennie’s incredible heart led to her be honored as a social activist, to adopt two teensy preemie twin sons, and to be a heroine and wish granter for orphans and other citizens of Nigeria. Kennie founded a non-profit organization known as Caring Hearts International that is trying to resolve many of the issues confronting people in her native country of Nigeria. Nigerians lack clean water and that can lead to various diseases, so Kennie and her volunteers helped construct a well in the eastern part of Nigeria.
Quality medical care is hard to come by or too expensive, so one of the main goals of Caring Hearts International is to complete the free medical clinic they’ve been constructing in Nigeria.
In addition to medical care, Kennie and her crew will oversee a women’s center with services that help women develop marketable skills, and also micro loans for young people—to help them learn trades, expand skills and become entrepreneurs. The governor of Imo State in Nigeria recognized Kennie’s contributions across his nation, and here in the US she was recently named Woman of the Month by P.O.W.E.R, an executive women’s group.
What makes Kennie truly beautiful is that open, caring heart, and benevolent spirit.
