I had an excellent meeting with Dr Julie Makani of the Sickle Cell Foundation yesterday. We have done two new things. We have wrapped the Alan Knight Tour d’Afrique fundraising campaign for the Sickle Cell Foundation into the larger, US$2.7million fundraising campaign for the Sickle Cell Centre of Excellence at the Muhimbili Hospital here in Dar Es Salaam. And we have put together a corporate sponsorship appeal and have begun to go out to corporate sponsors.
This is all very exciting. The Sickle Cell Centre of Excellence is desperately needed in Tanzania. The team at the hospital and the Foundation are doing a great job of raising awareness and establishing a a world class facility. It is inspiring to see their dedication and professionalism.
If you would like more details on the Sickle Cell Centre of Excellence Campaign or the Corporate Sponsorship Appeal, let me know by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t forget to donate to the Sickle Cell Foundation of Tanzania.
