Twice the Doctor Donation Update

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to report we have raised over $80,000 so far this financial year.

A very big thank you to all those who have contributed and a reminder to those that are considering a donation that there’s still time.

Just a brief recap on the reasons you might wish to contribute.

  1. Our field partners ( UNICEF, Fred Hollows Foundation, Barbara May Foundation, SURGICALife) have long term experience in achieving effective outcomes.
  1. TTD donations go towards training of medical staff so your contribution can and should be considered as a way to expand your medical services in areas that desperately need them. The staff trained by your contribution will in a sense be doing the job you, as a doctor would have done had you actually travelled all the way to Africa. (Please reflect on the logistics, the costs and the dangers of the actual trip.)  Hence, our entire concept of “ Twice The Doctor”; you are working here but at the same time you are empowering a doctor to work in Africa on your behalf.
  1. Your contribution goes an awfully long way in countries where a nurse often gets paid less than $200 per month.
  1. The directors of TTD pay all administrative costs so your donation goes further and all donations are fully tax deductible.

Regards to all,

Rob Baume 

On behalf of the Directors of Twice the Doctor Foundation
