Fundraising update

A whole team of people has been working very hard in the background to get our sickle cell foundation fundraising campaign off the ground. Anton, Annelie and Derek at DJPA Partnership, a local communications firm; Mejah and his crew at UWABA, a cycling advocacy group here in Tanzania; and Sarah and Julie at the Sickle Cell Foundation. We have two upcoming events: a reception for corporates on October 4th (the Sea Cliff hotel has kindly offered to host); and a ‘Cycle Caravan’ around Dar on October 21st – see the poster (it says Oct 14 by mistake – this will be changed). We are looking forward to both events and hoping to raise lots of dosh for the Sickle Cell Foundation.

Sickle Cell Centre of Excellence

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 alan@taylerknight.co.uk
