Dear friends and supporters,
Thanks to your incredible support, The Synthesis Collaborative is halfway to reaching its fundraising goal of $50,000 for IMPACT! in Bangladesh. This would provide much-needed diagnostic services to the region of Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, but more than that, it would be a innovative platform for radiologists all over the world to volunteer their services. It would be an evolution of the way that we can use technology to improve global health, and we need your generosity and forward thinking to carry us over the finish line.
In the last few months, our biggest updates have come from Cox's Bazar. The hospital, part of the Hope Foundation for Women and Children of Bangladesh, has begun building a new structure to house the diagnostic imaging center. Other funders of their programs have stepped up to take this lead, and we are eager to begin working with them on the ground once we are able to provide a digital x-ray machine. Until then, we are supporting the community by facilitating the work of two talented WALL\THERAPY artists, Herakut and How & Nosm, in Cox's Bazar this summer (recently featured in JUXTAPOZ magazine). Just as with our work in Rochester, we believe that art has the ability to inspire and heal communities.
We are truly grateful for all that you have given, and it has given us the optimism to know that this project is only beginning. We challenge you to show the same optimism today and make an investment in the possibility of global health. If you are interested in attending one of our events, learning more about our progress, or have questions, please feel free to contact us.
