Can we count on your support again?
As a Fundahigado America supporter, you know that liver diseases have become a new health epidemic among children. Evidence shows how Liver Transplant (LT) can become a long-term solution for liver diseases in children.
Approximately 600 pediatric LTs are needed in Latin America and the Caribbean per year, but only around 150 are performed, leading to an approximate of 500 deaths each year among children who do not receive this treatment.
Many factors contribute to children's lack of access to this
life-saving treatment. The most important is a lack of
healthcare professionals adequately trained in pediatric liver
Since we met, we have not stopped working towards our goals and we are now ready to start working in more countries in the region, Bringing Hope to those in need.
We are excited to share with you our new project: The Yellow Stories (making reference to the characteristic jaundice of our patients). It is a social media campaign that will be launched on Labor Day and will run through November, when we are planning to have our main Gala. The Yellow Stories show the tales of children that thanks to a Liver Transplant are now able to have a normal and enjoyable lives. It will be seen in Instagram, FaceBook, Twitter, and in our newly designed web page.
We would like to invite you to join us and be a special sponsor of The Yellow Stories Campaign. We need to raise Seventy Thousands Dollars (70,000.00 USD) to be able to launch our Campaign by September 3rd. All the supporters names will be listed in The Yellow Stories Landing Page that will be launched on July 3th, two months ahead of Labor Day. There, you will be able to follow our fundraising campaign and join the challenge to reach our goal.
