Dr. Milton & Dr. Fred Ochieng

Co-Founders, Lwala Community Alliance

Milton Ochieng, MD and Fred Ochieng, MD are brothers from Lwala, a village in Kenya. They came to the U.S. to go to college and medical school. While in school, they lost both of their parents to AIDS and took this as a call to action to build a hospital in their home community. Their organization, the Lwala Community Alliance (www.LwalaCommunityAlliance.org), now provides care to 17,000 patients a year.
