SPONSORS and PARTNERS
Without all the businesses, organizations and individuals who have supported the project financially, the project would not have reached the heights it has today. Thank you!
There is still a long way to go and therefore the project is still badly in need of donations and help. Sponsorships for Masanga is unconditional. This means that all who need treatment and cannot afford to pay the cost get it regardless of religion, status and political beliefs.
Since the hospital was reopened in 2006 over 100,000 people have been treated and this would not have been possible without the generous support of the numerous sponsors and partners, the largest of which are listed below:
