LGPA Hall Of Famer Returns To Africa

 SEATTLE -- This December, golf legend and LPGA Hall of Fame legend Betsy King, from Scottsdale, Arizona will make her third trip to Africa to help aspiring young female golfers in Kenya, genocide survivors inRwanda and AIDS orphans in Lesotho. King will go with LPGA golfer Stacy Lewis and two LPGA teaching pros: Suzanne Strudwick and Susie Corona.

On December 1st, King and her colleagues will arrive in Nairobi, Kenya where they'll go to a children's center and host a golf clinic for professional golfer Rose Naliaka and her junior golf program, and deliver toys to special needs children. Golf is widely considered an elitist sport for the rich. But one woman is on a mission to change that perception by promoting the game among the less privileged in Nairobi. Naliaka is grooming young girls to become like her, and four of them have already had the rare opportunity to attend a ladies tournament in Scotland. From Kenya, Betsy's group will then depart for Kigali, Rwanda on Monday, December 6th.

On December 8th they'll drive to southern Rwanda to visit the Uwinkingi Medical Clinic built in 2010 by Golf Fore Africa (GFA) donors and visit sponsored children in the Mudasomwa area. The medical clinic will provide basic health care, treat malaria and distribute ARV drugs to help those suffering with AIDS. In Rwanda they will also host a Christmas party for the children they sponsor.

Then they'll travel to Southern Africa where they'll deliver 1000 AIDS Caregiver Kits that were assembled in Scottsdale, AZ for caregivers in Lesotho. They will visit homes of HIV/AIDS patients with caregivers and work on a housing project with World Vision and Habitat for Humanity helping build houses for children who've been orphaned or made vulnerable by AIDS..

Since 2007, more than 60 LPGA players have donated time and money to help make Golf Fore Africa projects successful. Players include Lorena Ochoa and all 12 members of the 2007 U.S. Solheim Cup team. Juli Inkster, her two daughters (Hayley and Corrie), Reilley RankinKatherine Hull, and teaching pros Wendy Posillico and Renee Powell all accompanied Betsy Kingto Africa in past trips. In the past three years, Betsy King and her friends have donated more than $1.2 million dollars to help children.
