The first matching day of the year with GlobalGiving is tomorrow, March 16th! However, this time it will be a little different. This bonus day will be a pro-rated match day! GlobalGiving will have $75,000 in matching funds. Starting at 09:00:00 EST, all donations until midnight are eligible to be matched at the pro-rated percent. The pro-rated percent is based on the total amount of funds raised on the matching day, the amount our organization has raised, and the amount of matching funds that are available. This means we don’t yet know what the matching percent will be but we will find out at the end of the day. By doing this, GlobalGiving is able to offer matching funds for every online donation during the day!
MedPLUS Connect is still fundraising to establish the first cervical cancer screening and treatment program in the Upper West Region in Ghana. Cervical cancer is highly preventable with early screening and detection and is also very treatable when caught early. However, women in the Upper West Region currently don't have access to regular screenings and must travel significant distances to receive treatment. By fundraising to purchase the expensive equipment and supplies needed to provide both screening and treatment, we are enabling Dr. Fofie at the Wa Regional Hospital to provide the women of the Upper West Region with the care they need.
