Dominica Six Form College SiFoCol Alumni Association (DSAA) Dialysis Committee is requesting public assistance to obtaining much needed dialysis equipment and supplies for Dominicans with kidney disease
The Dominica Six Form College SiFoCol Alumni Association (DSAA) Dialysis Committee is requesting public assistance to obtaining much needed dialysis equipment and supplies for Dominicans with kidney disease.
The DSAA whose campaign is supported by the Dominica Hospital Authority, moved into action after witnessing firsthand, the challenges faced by a former classmate, colleague, and friend, as he traversed the long distance from a rural area into Roseau, several times a week for life saving treatment. Sadly, he succumbed to kidney disease about 9 months ago. DSAA is raising funds in his honor to support efforts to bring dialysis treatment and care to the rural parts of Dominica.
The goal this year is to raise USD$110,000 towards the purchase, ancillary supplies, shipment, and training costs for 2 dialysis machines. To date, less than two months since starting the campaign, they have raised US$22,612.65, just over 20% of their stated goal. This will advance treatment capabilityand will impact educational and prevention campaigns related to the importance of kidney health.
Your Donation will bring essential Dialysis Care to Patients in Rural areas! Dominica SifoCol Alumni Association (DSAA) is a registered charitable organization. The public can contact its President Wayne Liburd for donation links firstname.lastname@example.org.
