Erick Henderson ’12 was recently featured in an IWU news article, alongside fellow Titan alum Munib Said Mafazy ’02. An excerpt of the article is below.

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — An Illinois Wesleyan University student, faculty member and two alumni spent a week in July at the Lamu Center of Preventative Health (LCPH) in Kenya, where they provided free eye exams, screenings and glasses to over 300 patients in need.

The clinic was founded in 2007 by Professor of Anthropology Rebecca Gearhart Mafazy and her husband, Munib Said Mafazy ’02, a native of Lamu who serves as executive director. The clinic provides free, high-quality healthcare six days a week to the impoverished community, and Illinois Wesleyan has a long history of aiding LCPH through fundraisers and service trips.

“IWU has been a great supporter of the work we are doing at LCPH since the beginning,” said Gearhart Mafazy. “The people of Lamu have benefited tremendously from the free screening and counseling services the clinic provides.”

This summer’s service trip included Annie Crumbaugh ’19 (LeRoy, Illinois), Erick Henderson ’12 and his wife Erin, and Munib and Rebecca Mafazy.
