Dear friends,

To all of our partners, donors, and friends, I want to say “thank you” for supporting Kupona Foundation and our Tanzanian partner CCBRT in 2018.

I was a supporter of this work long before I ever joined the Board of Directors. When one of my former clients introduced me to Kupona’s mission, it resonated with me. I originally came to Kupona because of that relationship, but I stayed for the mission.

I stayed because of mothers like Flora, who can now deliver their babies in facilities that are safer, better equipped, and staffed with well-trained medical teams. I stayed because of Kupona and CCBRT’s commitment to finding sustainable, lasting solutions like the new CCBRT Private Clinic. I stayed because of children like Paulo, who are receiving the care they need to walk, see, play, and go to school. I stayed because of the inspiring and dedicated healthcare workers like Dr. Brenda and her team that are saving lives every day in delivery rooms across Dar es Salaam.

I stayed because this work is solving problems and saving lives, not just today, but for generations to come. And I am so glad I did.

On behalf of the Kupona team here in the U.S. and the team at CCBRT, thank you for making this year both life-changing and life-saving. We have just one more day left in 2018. If you have not yet had a chance to give, please do so. By training two maternal healthcare workers to handle complicated deliveries, a gift of just $100 has the power to save lives.

Wishing you and yours all the best in 2019.

Happy New Year!
Robert Schwed 

P.S. This past October, I took my second trip to visit our colleagues at CCBRT, where I was privileged to see the impact of your generosity firsthand. My good friend and the newest Kupona Board member, Betsy Zink, shared her impressions from this trip in this brief blog.
