We have launched the Fight for Life Campaign to raise funds for UKUN Center. The goal of the campaign is to raise enough funds to help UKUN sustain its operations and be able to provide the intended impact to its clients within the community.
We are posting a video link to the campaign which details the problem, the steps take towards the solution and how everyone would be able to help.

So far the campaign has been successful in raising enough funds to help the center pay towards its basic needs of rent, electricity, water, etc. but lots more remain to be fulfilled.
Progress for the quarter is as follows:
a- Receipt of a charitable donation of blood microscope from NHS system, UK
b- Receipt of medical supplies donation from various volunteer entities
c- Complete summer volunteer program with partner volunteer company CCS
d- Secure funds for project CURE Kits to be sent to Bagamoyo, Tanzania
e- Enroll with Healthcare Volunteer entity and advertise for volunteer placement
The first quarter of the year 2012 is not one of the more prosperous times for UKUN. While we continue providing services to those who are meant to be served by the program we continue to encounter multiple issues mostly due to lack of resources. The underlying message behind the quarterly report is mainly to raise the awareness towards the needs of the institution in the short and long term.
Major accomplishments in Q-I 2012:
1- Securing a shipment of medical supplies much needed for patient care. The items donated to the institution include basic first aid kit components, disinfectants, nutritional supplements and other components for supporting patient care. All items were locally purchased through the donated monies.
2- Received a donation of medical supplies from US/Canada. Items include blood collection vials, blood pressure machines (portable and fixed)
Expansion Plans for QII-2012
1- Hiring a full time nurse at the facility to cater for patient care and attend to the "walk-in" population.
2- Secure a purchase of nutritional supplement epap to be purchase from local supplier.
3- Expand on volunteer capacity from contracts with other local companies as well as self advertising and promoting.
4- Apply for grants worldwide to help support the NGO financially to continue with its services.
