Thank you for your support in 2016

Happy New Year! In 2016, your generosity touched the lives of thousands people. This past holiday season, our supporters gave over $18,000* to support our work in Tanzania, meaning that in 2016, the Kupona community came together to give over $960,000* to the empowerment of people and communities living in poverty in Tanzania.

At Kupona Foundation, we believe that every individual in our community has the power to change the lives of people like Jane. You have the potential to impact the healthcare of future generations through your support of training for medical teams. You can ensure every expectant mother we serve can enter a clean, safe, equipped delivery room to be assisted by a fully trained team.

We believe it because it’s already happening. Your generosity over the holiday season alone translates to:

  • Life changing, comprehensive treatment for 26 women like Jane who are living with obstetric fistula.
  • 273 hours of hands-on training and mentoring for medical teams on Dar es Salaam’s busiest labor & delivery wards.
  • The safe delivery of 34 babies in a clean, equipped facility.

We are resolved.

Our New Year’s Resolutions for 2017 are simple. We will give you more opportunities to provide high quality healthcare to more people in Tanzania: to equip more healthcare teams to save lives in Dar es Salaam, to empower more women and girls to build bright futures for themselves and their families, and to get more children with disabilities into school and playing with friends.

We are resolved to build on our momentum, working closely with our sister organization, CCBRT, and to make an impact this year that will ripple out to touch millions of lives in the years to come. We cannot do it without you. Will you continue to stand with us?

Thank you for all of your support, and best wishes for a healthy, happy 2017.
