Alicia Keys in Kenya for HIV Project

Grammy winner Alicia Keys is in Kenya supporting projects that she has been funding in with other celebrities through Keep a Child Alive, a charitable organization committed to supporting HIV patients in Africa. A Keys, who is supporting the project along with Oprah Winfrey, saw first hand how the money was being used at a pediatric HIV clinic at the Coast Provincial Hospital in Mombasa, 275 miles southeast of the capital, Nairobi. According to Columbian.com, About 400 children are currently benefiting from the program, which is providing them with free anti-retroviral drugs, said Dr. Anderson Kahindi, head of the clinic. He said Keys had been buying the drugs herself and shipping them directly to the hospital since 2004. Kenyan police and bodyguards prevented media from speaking to Keys. News of her visit to the hospital spread quickly and fans struggled to get a glimpse of the musician.
