Experience Wakanda in Wisconsin
As a registered non-profit organization, we depend on donations and grants. The contributions we receive help us provide mobile COVID-19 and other health services to vulnerable populations that experience barriers to accessing health care. To help us reach our 2022 fundraising goal and celebrate seven years of service to the Greater Milwaukee community, we invite you to Wakanda Wellness Week, Nov. 12 - 19, 2022.
