Thanks to your generous support, we have successfully raised $20,000.00 to ship the container with medical supplies and equipment to Cameroon. We are currently working with the Ministry of Finance in Cameroon to file a Letter of Exoneration from Taxes for the container shipment. We submitted our application on January 13, 2013 and it is currently being processed. Upon receipt of this letter, MedShare will start loading the container with the medical supplies. We will inform you as soon as all logistics for shipping the container have been finalized.
On Sunday morning (December 9, 2012), BFU-USA launched a donation campaign with the immediate goal of raising $2000.00 by asking member to donate $10.00 each. The response was phenomenal. In less than two weeks, BFU-USA members raised more than $6000 to purchase new mattresses, blanket, bed sheets, and school supplies for students affected by the fire. We are pleased to announce that your generous donations have successfully made their way to their intended recipients.
