Hope Ofiriha is appealing to GlobalGiving to maintain the partnership until this initiative is fully funded. In a next three months, will be sending you a new field update to let you know how the impac of your giftt is making positive changes in the ground.
A volunteer, who worked at AIDs initiative project, noticed that the Survival clinic was desperately short of equipment. She asked a dealer if it can sell a microscope at a discount price to Hope Ofiriha so that it can donate it to the clinic to protect lives. A microscope and PH meters get approved quickly at a reduced price. Also, she got a private donor who gave much of the funding. We are still in need of $300 to meet our primary goal. We are appealing to 30 donors each to make a tax deductible donation of $30 this Christmas so that a project gets a unit to fight malaria. We are very grateful to our volunteer," wrote William Ochieng.
