A Summer of Fundraising for Global Health

Fleeing Iraq
Fleeing Iraq

 

This summer after the Nepalese crisis, we took a break from recording new medical modules in order to pursue additional fundraising opportunities.  The burgeoning refugee crisis and the violent and deadly political chaos in the Middle East clearly requires a large scale expansion of our native-language medical remediation functions. 

Among other positive engagements with potential donors, we've begun exploring a collaboration with a streaming media operation which has global affiliates.  Under the terms of a grant to be administered through Global Giving, this organization has preliminarily agreed to add IMCRA's free and open access medical content to their bandwidth as a global public service in China, Vietnam, Hungary, Syria and Germany.   Our services would then be significantly more widely accessable via smartphone as well as internet and onsite.  This would also be a tremendous boost to penetration into areas that badly need expert medical resources available in native languages (with translations) targeted at both physicians and afflicted populations.

While these negotiations are in process any help we can receive from other sources will be highly appreciated.  Our aim is to get both video modules and accompanying educational materials to the right populations worldwide where they are most urgently needed, as rapidly as possible, in a free and easily accessible form, and in a language that both patients and the physicians treating them can understand.

Our skilled multi-lingual medical faculty have been more than happy to donate their time and expertise in every way, but to meet the demand, especially for the refugees streaming out of ISIS-plagued nations, we need to significantly expand in terms of infrastructure, staffing and honoraria.

Thanks as always for your consideration and help
