BEBES had a few big events to end this academic year with a bang! The first event was the culmination of their birth kits project. They were able to collect enough donations and grant money to make approximately 230 birth kits! 75 were shipped to Uganda to be dispersed through the Uganda Village Project. The rest were sent to Family Health Ministries, in Durham, to be used in their new Women’s Health Clinic in Haiti.
BEBES also partnered again with Student Wellness for their annual Sexual Health Trivia awareness event. This year the event was held at The Baxter Barcade in Carrboro and was a great night for everyone – lots of fun, shared knowledge, and a great way to celebrate the end of a wonderful year! Nicole and Paige would like to say thank you to all the BEBES members and volunteers this year. It would not have been the same without you! They would also like to introduce Kimberly Hoang and Valerie Lansdale, who will be co-leading BEBES for the 2016-17 year.
