After all that discussion about cancer I finally have a chance to contribute to the re-establishing of a radiotherapy unit at Pom General Hospital. Got a letter today from a Dr. Evelyn Lavu, the interim President of the Women Doctors Association.
I’ll read a bit of the letter here…
“For the past three years, our association has been actively involved in a campaign towards the re-establishment of the radiotherapy unit in the country. This has come in the form of government lobbying and various fundraising efforts…Through your generous support…we have been able to raise over K250,000.00. This is now held in trust funds until such time it is required for the purpose of establishing the radiotherapy unit.
The government has to date committed K3 million towards this project and have given us assurance that radiotherapy along with the support facilities and manpower resources will be funded, As an association we are committed to ensure that this service becomes a reality by keeping pressure on the government, whilst at the same time continuing with fundraising activities…”
So they have their annual charity dinner on Saturday 28th July at the Holiday Inn. K2,500.00 per table for 10 people. Dinner is a buffet and the fancy dress theme for the night is ‘Tropical Calypso’. A live band will also be performing.
