BENEFITING: Universal Promise

EVENT DATE: Feb 20, 2016

THE STORY:

HIV/AIDS patients, children with severe gastrointestinal pain, and those crippled by tuberculosis suffer outside in 100-degree temperatures, day after day, hoping to see a medical professional. They often wait 10 hours in the piercing sun, without water, bathrooms, a waiting room, and a sufficient pharmacy, only to return home without treatment. "That's just the way it is," I have heard the residents say. "We will come back the next day and hope for something better."

Proper healthcare, particularly in a region where some communities claim a 70% rate of HIV/AIDS and an escalating incidence of tuberculosis, should be a basic human right, and Universal Promise needs your help to bring that to reality. Please help us renovate the Addo Clinic, the only nearby medical facility for three communities of undernourished, underserved, and often ignored people. If we are successful, we will

  • enlarge the current reception and waiting areas
  • expand and improve the existing pharmacy
  • make current treatment protocols more available
  • offer a protected region for patients waiting outside
  • install proper outdoor restroom facilities
  • construct a wheelchair accessible ramp
  • improve the fencing
  • erect a guard house to improve security
  • construct a dental waiting area, a proper treatment space, and storage

Ease the suffering of those who already have too much to bear and address a sphere of life that affects our main focus: education. Together we may break the seemingly inexorable cycle of poverty and injustice in our little neck-of-the-woods in South Africa.

I meant to check this before midnight last night and I forgot! I'm hopeful you can still get the matching grant, even though you met your goal after midnight. Praying for your team and the wonderful work you are doing. 2 years ago
