Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
We are an organization committed to saving and improving the lives of women and children in Tanzania.
Kupona directly supports CCBRT, the largest provider of rehabilitative health care in Tanzania and has an established record of high-quality direct medical care since 1994. Every year, around 120,000 adults and children with disabilities and their caregivers achieve a better quality of life through CCBRT services.
CCBRT's new maternity hospital is a priority for Kupona's efforts to raise awareness and funding. This program is part of an unprecedented public-private partnership with the Government of Tanzania to address the major challenge of high maternal and newborn mortality and disability rates. Because of this collaboration with the government, our approach is sure to become an innovative and replicable model for providing comprehensive women's health care at the regional level in Africa. We know that by improving women's health care in Africa, we can save thousands of lives, reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and prevent the occurrence of disabilities. The cumulative effect can bring transformational changes to families, villages and entire communities.
