BENEFITING: TIMMY GLOBAL HEALTH

Bhaskar Mitra

THE STORY:

In 2017 August I will set sail from London as part of the leg 1 of the Clipper 2017-18 race. The leg will take me across the Atlantic Ocean to South America. The port of arrival hasn't been announced yet, but it is likely that it will be in Rio, Brazil. In many cultures it is considered good manners to bring a little gift with you when you go to someone's home -- and as some of you may know -- I have a special love for South America. So it would mean the world to me if I can bring along with me a little gift when I arrive there in September. That is why I am running this fund-raiser. Every penny / cent / paise you donate through CrowdRise goes to the Timmy Global Health charity DIRECTLY.


I volunteered with Timmy Global Health in Tena, Ecuador for the first time in 2012... and then went back in 2013... and 2014... and going back again this year. They are the most wonderful bunch of people (all the staffs and the volunteers) doing the most wonderful (and the much needed work) trying to make healthcare accessible to an (even more) wonderful bunch of people living in the remotest part of the Amazon jungle. Among many things, they run a very large number of medical brigade trips per year - made up of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, translators, and non-medical professionals - all volunteers. If you are curious then I encourage you to read on, but most importantly consider coming on one of these trips yourself.


As much as I love volunteering with Timmy, a harsh reality is that the most effective way for me to contribute to their mission is by raising funds for all the medical supplies and resources they need on the ground. So when I signed up for The Clipper Race it was a pretty straightforward decision for me to use this as a means to raise money for Timmy. So please go ahead and click the button below, and share a little love with this wonderful charity, and I hope someday I will meet YOU on a Timmy brigade somewhere in the middle of the Amazon jungle!
