Medical Counselor: Vallary Achieng Oyando
Val began serving with CFA in 2015. Her favorite part of the job is seeing clients transformed, especially the bedridden. She is inspired when they are empowered, starting an income generating activity and providing for their families.
“I have always wanted to touch people’s lives, especially the vulnerable, in a different way because I believe I have a compassionate heart. I also like to see community transform positively and get rid of AIDS.”
