Hernia and Cataract Surgeries in Africa – Donation Campaign
Our mission in Africa is to transform lives and strengthen communities by restoring sight and preventing blindness.
There are thousands of underserved communities currently waiting for cataract surgery.
We request your generous support so that much needed medical care of these patients could be performed.
Whitetulip Health Foundation (WHF) Global Health Division is launching a new project in Malindi and the Somali border of Kenya, areas where the residents are low-income earners who live a life in extreme poverty and can not afford to pay for their healthcare expenses. WHF Global Health Division and AFYA International Hospital in Kenya will work together to screen thousands of patients in these regions for hernia and cataract problems and will do the surgical operations if needed. The goal is to do approximately 100 operations between March-May 2021. Each operation will cost ~$200 which will be free of charge to the patients.
WHF is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that connects healthcare professionals who want to give back to society. Its aim is to create a platform, where they can share ideas and experiences, provide mutual support and collaborate, channel their own personal passions and skills in community projects both locally and abroad. Our mission is to mobilize the caring power of healthcare professionals to advance the health status of the communities we serve.
As a part of our mission, WHF will be supporting patients and providing access to necessary care and treatment they cannot afford and will be collaborating with AFYA International Hospital located in this region offering comprehensive both outpatient and inpatient health services of quality standards by dedicated staff. We request your generous support so that much needed medical care of these patients could be performed.
