Join Linda in support of Help Stop Malaria in Burma Campaign
The heavy malaria season is right around the corner!
Help me reach a goal of raising $1,000 to help our partners buy malaria treatments before the heavy rainy season hits! As many of you may know, I work with many community based and ethnic health organizations who are providing health services in very hard to reach areas throughout Eastern Burma. Through their primary health care approach, they are helping to actively find and treat malaria patients in their villages, and containing the spread of multi-drug resistant malaria (a major public health emergency, ask the WHO!). However, one of their biggest and chronic challenges has been the ability to access affordable, good quality medicines. (Burma is rife with fake drugs, sadly). Luckily, through various “public-private” partnerships, our partners have the opportunity to buy good quality ACTs that are affordable right now.
And this is where your support can really help. The cost of one adult treatment is about $1.00 and I’m hoping to raise $1,000 for this rainy season. This means with your support, we would be able to treat 1,000 patients!
Pitch in a dollar or 20 or 100 (or whatever you would like). It would mean a lot to me! I’ve been working with CPI-GHAP for the past 8 years because I love my organization and its support and strengthening of the work our partners do.
Thanks so much, guys!!!! Love, Linda
