BENEFITING: Touch Foundation

EVENT DATE: Jan 06, 2013

Monisha de Quadros

THE STORY:

One mountain (Kilimanjaro 19,340 ft)… One dream (to make a difference)… One life (help save a life amidst the health crisis in Tanzania). 

Please join me and help me raise funds for Touch Foundation to save lives in Tanzania.

My goal:

Climbing Kilimanjaro has been on my bucket list for several years now and although checking this item off my list would be an accomplishment in itself… I want to do more.   Through every accomplishment, challenge and obstacle in my life, I want to make a difference.   I want to add some value to this world and in some small way, help make it a better place.

On January 6th 2013, I will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro on behalf of Touch Foundation and will help raise $20,000 for the amazing, dedicated work that Touch does in Tanzania.  

To train for this climb, I will be running two half marathons (Jul 14 and Sep 22), possibly running the ING NY marathon on Nov 4 (with enough donations, I will commit to running it!) and climbing 4 different 14,000 feet mountains this summer in Colorado. 

I hope you will help me with my Climb for Health:  One mountain, One dream, One life.

Health Crisis:

Everyday people are dying in Tanzania (part of sub-Saharan Africa) from preventable diseases and injuries because of a severe shortage of health professionals, retention / emigration of trained healthcare workers, the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, lack of funding for health institutions and the imbalanced geographical distribution of trained health professionals.     

Touch Foundation:

Touch Foundation addresses this crisis by helping to educate/train, deploy and retain healthcare workers such as doctors, nurses, lab technicians and pharmacists.   Today Touch has helped graduate 150 doctors and over 1,300 other healthcare professionals in Tanzania.   They work diligently to ensure these health professionals reach the patients who need them, by deploying healthcare workers and clinical teaching faculty into the remote regions of Tanzania to save lives.   They also provide added clinical support for these teams to increase retention and the likelihood that they will continue to serve in these areas of highest need. 

Touch focuses on areas with the highest incidence of infant and maternal mortality, HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria.  Their goal is to create a self-sustainable network in Tanzania, where the country has the necessary resources to close the critical healthcare worker gap and provide patients, in even the remotest areas, effective and timely care.
