Where we work
Healthcare & Education Projects
The foundation runs a number of healthcare & education projects in East Africa, West Africa and Central Asian region.
Kenya - Tanzania - Uganda
In the East Africa region we partner with local NGOs and medical centers assisting them with the services they offer to the community. Social non profits run program a pediatric surgical assistance in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. In Kenya additional programs include pediatric oncology as well as Ostomy care.
Working in the country of Tajikistan with partners in the city of Dushanbe and Khorog on the country's first complete medical imaging solution for radiology.
Also, providing clinical and technical support to the cardiology hospital in Khorog. Supported projects include tele-radiology and tele-cardiology support for secondary interpretation of studies.
West Africa / Middle East
Egypt - Ghana
Both in the countries of Egypt and Ghana providing medical imaging support for the national referral hospitals of Kasr Al Aini, Cairo and Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra. Projects have evolved from the donations of computer hardware to provide the needed infrastructure to medical imaging solution for the department of radiology and spreading to the clinical areas thereafter.
We are a voluntary community-based charity and a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with a global agenda which is working with the aim to provide children and young people of poorer background and orphans with early learning, education, health care, socio-economic empowerment and ongoing support to shape responsible and productive citizens with neither political nor religious affiliations or ambitions. We aim to provide underprivileged patients the appropriate healthcare needed through basic medical services donations that could be coordinated with the local partner district health facilities at the locations where the foundation operates its projects globally.
Our projects worldwide by genre are divided into healthcare and educational domains.
For the educational projects we run with local partners a student assistance program to help disadvantaged children to gain education.
For the healthcare projects they are in the domains of assistance with supplies to health centers or directly to patients to contribute towards surgery camps in collaboration with US based medical centers and NGOs.

How you can help?
We strive to do it all. Our social services organization provides a number of educational and healthcare assistance programs to which help is much needed. We are looking for the following individuals who are looking to make a difference to volunteer with our organization. Opportunities available in the US to help remotely or through onsite international travel.
Sample tasks and duties would be for example running a fundraising campaign for a specific cause, helping with solicitation of medical supplies or grant writing of proposals. Written skills are highly valued for US based volunteer opportunities.
Medical doctors and nurses
Social workers with different disciplines and specialties. HIV counselors always welcome.
Healthcare facilities workers of any background and experience
Non-medical volunteers, university students for internship always welcome for credits.
With our mission always in mind, we work tirelessly to improve the lives of individuals from all walks of life. Volunteer Work is something that we take very seriously, and work to enhance each and every day. Our whole team of dedicated Social Services Organization experts and volunteers are committed to this cause and will continue to work for a better future. Programs like the pediatric surgery assistance is aimed to change a child's life with a low cost surgery their parents cannot afford.
Fundraising for projects
Funding surgeries for pediatric cases identified within the community. The fees are to cover the cost of the surgery, logistical expenses and the medication.
Purchasing of medical supplies for partner community medical centers. Basic supplies are available locally but because of constrained budgets the centers are unable to provide to patients.
Sponsoring our supported students enrolled for tuition and school supplies.
At our local facilities abroad we are dedicated to supporting beneficiaries through our various initiatives. With one of our initiatives being Workshops, we are always striving to make a difference through education. Workshops could be dedicated towards a specific target audience. Examples would be stoma care for pediatric patients, living with HIV and reaching your life goals. Workshops for teen girls attending school have also been provided in the past.
