My humanitarian trip to Kenya was spent working alongside the Kenya Red Cross; the purpose of the trip was to understand public health problems in order to develop solutions and integrate research to confirm successful results. I traveled across Kenya for 2 months, experiencing a myriad of public health interventions addressing various issues or situations. Halfway through my trip, I found myself traveling with a media group, who were interviewing beneficiary populations of an HIV/AIDS American Red Cross and Kenya Red Cross collaboration, in Western Kenya. They were creating a video with stories of local people who described how the program impacted their lives; this video was being sent to the American Red Cross to shed light on the success of the intervention.
