LWALA, KENYA- In 2006, NewsChannel 5 reported about a Vanderbilt University medical student who was the first person from his Kenyan village to fly in an airplane.
People back home sold their livestock to pay for his ticket to the United States.
Now they need Milton Ochieng back to save his dying village.
Every student at Vanderbilt Medical School encounters AIDS. But only Ochieng has been orphaned by it.
First his mother, then his father - he learned of their deaths through email.
"I don't think anything really prepared me for it," Ochieng said.
