Emily Morrow Finkell, founder of Emily Morrow Home, is a cancer survivor who founded the Kiker Morrow Finkell Foundation for Family Care in 2017. Through this organization, her company supports others battling cancer in their time of need.
Emily Morrow Home also recently announced its partnership with Village HopeCore in Chogoria, located in the slopes of Mount Kenya.
Finkell was familiar with the work of Dr. Phil Rasori, Village HopeCore medical director, before traveling to South Africa and made it a point to meet with him during her stay. She spent time learning about the about the non-profit organization, and the numerous ways they help support the health and wellness of women and children in rural communities.
“Through our medical programs, we teach those in underdeveloped areas how to take care of their health and that of their families,” says Dr. Rasori. “We combine our teachings with prenatal support, care for newborns and mothers, and free clinical services throughout the Maara Sub County.”
“Family and home are the cornerstones of everything we do at Emily Morrow Home and the Kiker Morrow Finkell Foundation,” explains Finkell. “So, when I saw the difference HopeCore is making with the women and children in this area of the world, I had to respond. After corresponding with Dr. Rasori, I offered to give a portion of Emily Morrow Home’s sales to support the clinic’s work and to provide “bed netting” to protect the most vulnerable from mosquito-borne illnesses.”
