Huruma is an urban slum community located in Northeast Nairobi. The community borders the Kariobangi slum, which has been home to a CARE for AIDS center since early 2014. Huruma was made famous in May of 2016 due to a tragic building collapse which killed 13 community members. The community has a high HIV infection rate and its residents live in extreme poverty.
The CARE for AIDS center in Huruma operates in partnership with the Kenya Assemblies of God Huruma Church (pictured) under the leadership of Reverend Geoffrey Kimai.
