The pursuit of this vision has been remarkable. What started (over four years ago) as a simple search in google for Africans living with Parkinson's has blossomed into an organisation that is determined to positively impact the Parkinson's landscape across Africa.
That organisation is asking for your support today, if you are able. Parkinson's Africa needs seed funding to help get it officially off the ground. The start of any venture is a daunting task, and this case is no exception, but many lives have already been touched through the generosity of friends, family and organisations that have/continue to support Parkinson's Africa's mission - it is impossible to stop now.
If you are able, could you please lend your support to this cause? The funds raised will go towards paying for administrative assistance, purchasing standard supplies and software, updating the website, creating a repository of educational materials, and creating/printing informational materials, brochures and flyers.
Please note that Parkinson's Africa is not yet a registered charity with the charity commission but it is registered with Companies House as non-profit, and it has a non-profit bank account (tied to this fundraiser) with Lloyds bank. The fundraising target has been set at £5,000 because that is the minimum amount the Charity Commission requires charitable companies to have raised before applying for charity status.
Whatever you are able to give is tremendously appreciated, especially given the current economic climate. Thank you so much for your kind consideration and/or donation. Please visit www.parkinsonsafrica.com for more information.
