More than $9 billion worth of medical supplies are discarded each year in the United States. At the same time, less fortunate countries like Guinea Bissau, are in desperate need of medical supplies.
But today I bring you GOOD NEWS!
We have exceeded our fundraising goal for medical supplies! We have raised $1,615 (to date) plus another $1,000 from Mala's birthday donation for a total of $2,615!!! The donation site will remain open until Mar 28th.
The money will come in handy, as I learned today that a big Health Brigade (led by Raquel & Juan) is planned for the village of Djati on May 4th and 5th. I'm not sure exactly where we are right now with the building of the structure but with a little bit of luck the building will be up and ready to receive patients.
Wouldn't that be grand?
We're not finished yet. We still have the final phase of the project left to go (which will be to raise funds for solar lighting). So please keep on donating. Any additional funds we receive during this phase, will go toward the purchase of the lighting. We would love to get a head start, so if you have a few extra dollars to spare please help us by donating them to the project. And spread the word.
I hope to share medical clinic photos very soon.
THANK YOU to all who have contributed so far!
