shoe4africa - make the difference!

false - 28898

In 2024, Zeynep and I are continuing raising funds to continue to build the largest children’s medical facility in Africa for children (private or public, and our facility will be public to serve all).

With your help, we have started construction on the 152-bed Shoe4Africa children’s cancer hospital this October in Eldoret, Kenya. Today, there is no other children’s cancer hospital in sub-Saharan Africa and we believe this directly correlates to why a staggering 9/10 children who are diagnosed with cancer in this vast region are dying, whereas that number is 1/10 in the states where kids cancer hospitals are accessible. Again, our cancer hospital will be a public facility meaning no child we will be turned away.

This new center will be located next to the public children’s hospital that we opened in 2015, where we recently treated our one millionth patient! It will be a teaching hospital allowing us change the narrative and to improve on the three pediatric oncologists that are treating Kenya’s 50-million population.

100% of your tax-free donation will go directly to funding our programs.  Thank you so much for your continued love and support and we will see you at the finish line!
