Greetings! We are happy to share with you some updates from our sister organization, CCBRT, from the last few months.
With the recent opening of the new Maternal Wing within CCBRT, and as of early September we are happy to report 150 deliveries so far this year! CCBRT has held some exciting events to honor the opening of the Maternal Wing, including hosting Her Excellency President Samia Suluhu Hassan. Here you, see the Chair of the CCBRT Board, Dr. W. Slaa, presenting Her Excellency President Hassan with a portrait of her with Mabinti Centre participants from her visit to CCBRT years ago as our fistula ambassador.
We are also happy to report an update on the wheelchair distribution at the House of Hope in Moshi. The Wheelchairs for Kids program was provided in part by funding from the Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation and through contributions received by Kupona Foundation. At this time, all 166 wheelchairs procured have been distributed to children in need. Your support has provided these children with life-changing equipment to improve their mobility and quality of life.
Your support through GlobalGiving helps CCBRT provide improved access to healthcare and assistive devices. On behalf of the team at Kupona Foundation, I thank you for your continued support.
With Gratitude, Robert Schwed President, Kupona Foundation Board of Directors
