BENEFITING: CARENOW FOUNDATION

THE STORY:

We all enjoyed the World Cup, right?

Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people in South African shantytowns were displaced as a result of the South African initiative to “clean up” big cities and build stadiums for the World Cup. This has led to a huge spike in patients at the 1,000 Hills Clinic in South Africa as these citizens were relocated farther from urban hospitals. With supplies already scarce, patients are dying.

I volunteer for the CareNow Foundation, a California nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing and maintaining medical clinics throughout Africa – the 1,000 Hills Clinic included. A small group of people work 'round-the-clock to bring medical attention to the world's least served.

CareNow's six clinics are always in need of medical supplies, but the aftermath of the World Cup places the 1,000 Hills Clinic in South Africa highest in the need for aid.

Healthcare is a basic right. The CHALLENGE that we must meet is ensuring that this right is kept a reality.

It costs just $5.00 to treat one patient at 1,000 Hills. The need for supplies is urgent.
Are you willing to save a life?



*A note: Patients at this clinic, and most of CareNow's clinics, are learning skills such as crafting and weaving in order to support themselves, and even give a portion of their earnings back to the clinics. Giving = a cycle of giving back. Join the movement!
