This blog post from January 11th will explain the background to today’s update. Four weeks at £10,000 a week that’s fantastic! Just one final push needed.
From Bridge2Aid today:
Exactly 4 weeks ago today we launched our emergency appeal. We have now raised over £40,000 – a phenomenal amount. Just 20% of our appeal target stands between us and the continuation of our vital work in East Africa.
We thank you so much for donating to the appeal and ask that you keep telling your patients, clients, colleagues, family and friends about our plea. In this week’s video blog, found here, CEO Mark Topley explains why it’s so important for us to raise at least £50,000 and thanks you, our faithful supporters who already have.
We currently have two teams training 12 Health Workers in the Shinyanga region in Tanzania and at the end of play yesterday – day 2 of training – they had treated over 300 patients. It just goes to show how important our work is, and why we must ensure that we can continue to provide access to so many people who may otherwise face a lifetime of pain. Keep up to date with the Health Workers’ progress via our Facebook page here.
Wishing you an enjoyable weekend and thanking you for your continued support.
With kind regards,
The Bridge2Aid team.
