BENEFITING: Catholic Relief Services, Inc.
Dear Our Prospective Donor When someone goes to a health facility, they expect to meet a health worker that shows compassion, care, respect and consideration for the people in her care. In many developing settings, unfortunately that is not the case. The persistent lack of nurses and community health workers to meet the ever-growing demands is compounded by the limited innovation in the nursing career and limited options. The Nightingale Institute is an upcoming client driven and collaborative learning establishment that encourages critical and learner-driven education. Our goal is to be a leader in nursing and community health providing the highest quality of instruction, using the latest information technology, practical and hands-on experience and incorporating the latest approaches in skills development. Programmes of study offered include Certificate in Midwifery, Nursing and Community Health. To date, construction of the administration block, lecture rooms, a skills laboratory, Library & computer laboratory, student and staff accommodation has been completed (www.nightingaleinstituteuganda.com). Without a doubt, the graduates of the Institute will work in hospitals, health centres, and public and private clinics. We are requesting for a kind donation (every dollar counts) to ship medical equipment donated through Project C.U.R.E (Commission on Urgent Relief and Equipment)(https://secure3.4agoodcause.com/project-cure/fundraisers/personal-page.aspx?pid=418) from Colorado to Kampala, Uganda in time for the opening of the institute slated for November 2017. Each donation will be recognized by a letter of appreciation from CURE that can be used for your tax returns purposes. Thank you in advance for considering this request. We look forward to receiving your kind donation and referring us to your friends and family that will contribute and make this project a success. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me on email@example.com or 703 388 8820. Sincerely, Dr. David Mabirizi (The Nightingale Institute)
