Please Support Africa We Care Raise Funds to Ship Medical Equipment & Supplies to Africa
My dear friends:
My name is Chukwuemeka Obiajunwa. I am the Executive Director of Africa We Care. I am reaching out to you to ask for your financial support to enable us ship some medical equipment and supplies to Nigeria.
You see, in Africa today, very deplorable health and sanitary conditions are the root causes of the rampant and frequent occurrences of pandemics and epidemics like Ebola, polio, typhoid, and malaria that continue to ravage the continent in this day and age.
It is one of the tragedies of our time that in almost all of the African countries, healthcare facilities are destitute and indigent, at best. At worst and in many of the countries, the most rudimentary of healthcare facilities is completely lacking. Routinely and needlessly, men, women, and children die of the most easily preventable and curable of illnesses and diseases like fever, headache, and diarrhea.
In Africa today, one in 4 children still die before their first birthday; one in 5 women still die in child-birth. The average life span of Africans is still miserably at 47 years. The ugly statistics go on and on.
It is mind-boggling and stomach-churning to hear these numbers on the evening news, to watch the effects of the preventable illnesses on the television, or to read about the increasing death tolls.
Africa We Care, dedicated to the alleviation of suffering in Africa, has embarked on addressing this intractable healthcare issue.
Recently, Africa We Care identified the Digoe Clinic in Owerri, Nigeria, where a team of husband-and-wife doctors selflessly and relentlessly do battle with diseases and illnesses, mostly preventable and curable, if only they had the right medical equipment, instruments, and supplies to aid them.
To this effect, Africa We Care made a commitment to renovate, revamp, and re-equip the clinic.
(The hospital and medical equipment are being loaded onto sea can containers for shipment to Africa.)
Here in Canada, Africa We Care has received a lot of medical equipment, furnishings, and medicines in donations, mostly from the Gibeault family of Morinville, Alberta, to fill several sea can containers. These containers, filled with life-saving supplies, are ready to be shipped.
I am appealing to you, my friends, for some financial assistance to enable Africa We Care defray the estimated $30,000 in the shipping costs of these medical equipment and supplies to Nigeria.
We need your support. No amount is too small, but will go a long way in alleviating suffering in Africa.
