Appreciation

We thank you for you timely, tireless assistance.

Request

We request more funding through linking us to partners to raise funds for the clinic, in order to get anti-malaria drugs, malaria test strips, hepatitis, and HIV/AIDS strips, and have mosquito nets to help reduce malaria.

Long Live Brighter Brains Institute and its members and partners.

sincerely yours,

Kambasu Zedekia, clinic attendant
