Creating more opportunities for impact in 2018

Dear Friends,

2017 was a year of challenges. For many of us, the health, wellbeing and fundamental safety of our global community has rarely, if ever, felt so under threat. There is no denying that the challenges we face in achieving our global goals are complicated, and will not be solved overnight.

Yet that hasn't deterred our team or this community: because 2017 was our biggest year yet.

Thanks to the generosity of our partners and donors like you we were able to mobilize more than $1.5 million in financial and in-kind resources in 2017 to support the continuation of transformative healthcare programs in Tanzania.

That means we were able to deliver high-quality surgeries and rehabilitative care to more people in vulnerable communities. We trained healthcare workers to save the lives of mothers and newborns, and made investments in equipment and systems needed to deliver quality care to the hundreds of people seeking critical healthcare services at our partner hospital, CCBRT, every day. This number doesn't include the hours of advice, and hands-on event support our volunteers and friends also gave so generously. Thank you.

As we enter 2018, we are full of hope and drive. This year, CCBRT has launched a new, five-year strategy, and their vision for the future is ambitious: for CCBRT to be the leading provider of accessible, specialized health services in Africa.

At Kupona, we’ve long believed in CCBRT’s ability to make this happen. They are already a global leader in disability services, one of the largest providers of obstetric fistula treatment worldwide, and a key partner to the Government of Tanzania in the fight to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes. We have no doubt that, in the not-too-distant future, their vision will become a reality. We’re excited to be a part of the journey, and we hope that you are, too.

You have a critical role to play. Donors like you are crucial to ensuring we can deliver quality care to vulnerable people every day. That’s why, this year, we are working harder to make your donations go further.

We’re going to work smarter, and give you more opportunities to capitalize on matches and prize funds. In 2017, through our partnership with GlobalGiving, our community unlocked over $3,000 in bonus funds and prizes through Bonus Days, competitions and matching campaigns, which is the equivalent of 60 additional healthcare workers trained.

This year, we want to build on this success, and do even more to amplify your impact. Stay tuned to our GlobalGiving reports and social media through the year for the latest news on available matches & contests.

With renewed conviction, and the momentum of our best year yet propelling us forward, we are determined to achieve bold gains for the people and communities of Tanzania. Will you join us?

Say “yes” with your recurring or one-time donation, today.
