Drop by drop, the river will flood

This Moroccan proverb sums up a lot of the progress that we have made in the last weeks and months!  We keep working hard on logistics, and we know that with each drop, we get closer to the river flooding and our plans becoming a reality.  Here is an overview of some of the drops we are working on:

  • FUNDS:  We are very close to having the full amount required to get the pilot project running for 3 years.  Of course we still need to press on with fundraising, but with a few big grants approved, we are ready to get started!
  • EQUIPMENT:  We have a full 40-foot container of medical equipment ready to be packed this week in Seatle, Washington.  All the papers have been submitted for approval, and once that is granted over $200K worth of equipment will be on our way – Santa Claus might even have it here by Christmas!!
  • COLLABORATION:  We have had some great conversations with the local health authorities here and those working hard to improve the Emergency Care situation about how we can work together to serve the community of Marrakech.  Watch this space for some innovative and creative partnership ideas to come out of these conversations!
