Are You our Champion?

Foundation Massawa is Dutch-Eritrean Foundation committed to support Children’s health and education. We kindly invite you to join us on September 20th at the 25th jubilee Damloop 2009 Running event and support our project – we are sending a mobile x-ray machine to the Emergency unity at the Orrota Referral Pediatrics Hospital in Eritrea.

Last year with the generous support and hard work of our Damloop 2008 running teams, we raised 2724,30 Euro. The money was used to buy necessary equipment for the Emergency Unit. The pictures below are taken in June 2009 during which our secretary was in Eritrea handing over the material to the hospital representatives.

Sponsoring a mobile x-ray machine means sick children do not need to get out of bed to have an x-ray taken -especially important for very ill children, for instance those with lung infection. So far, through the generous donation and support of various individuals and organizations, we have arranged the transport of the x-ray machine. Now we need to pay the cost of the x-ray machine, which is (€3800). We have reserved € 1000 from our last fundraiser and we hope to raise the €2800 left at the Damloop 2009.

The minimum amount of sponsor money each runner needs to raise is:
€30: Mini damloop
€100: 4 miles (6.4km) and 10 (16.2km) miles

The collected money needs to be transferred to Foundation Massawa by the 1st of October 2009
