February 6, 2016 Update: We have just learned about an AMAZING grant opportunity to obtain funds for Our Clinic that are available right now!
To do this, we need to raise $25,000 over the next 20 days to hire an “In-Country Representative” to be stationed in Juba, South Sudan for a 6-month period.
We know how passionate you are about the success of our clinic; share that passion with your friends, family and co-workers. Rally the troops! This is the moment to make a difference that can impact Panrieng, South Sudan for years to come!
This money will be used to recruit, hire, transport, establish an office, accommodations and pay a salary for our representative.
This individual will then work full time as a liaison with NGOs (non-governmental organizations) and local government agencies to write grants and obtain funds that are available right now to help those suffering from the health crisis that so many are facing. Our representative will also work with our clinic manager to help with the ongoing need of buying and transporting medicines, and will be present during on-site meetings where our needs are discussed.
We have less than 20 days to secure the funds necessary to hire our representative. The success of the clinic depends on your generosity.
Thank you very much, in Swahili
