Donations to the Cycle for Sickle Cell Campaign to raise money for the Sickle Cell Foundation of Tanzania to establish a day treatment centre, have continued to come in over the last couple of weeks since the end of the Tour d’Afrique.
A corporate donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has just donated $15,000 to the campaign. This brings our total raised to almost $47,000. We don’t have far to go now.
The Sickle Cell Foundation of Tanzania has now identified a site for the day treatment centre. The money raised to date now makes it possible to begin negotiations. Exciting times.
The Foundation is planning to hold a press conference on World Sickle Cell Day, June 19, to continue to raise awareness. This would be a great day to hit our target.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed!
