Wellness Testing Project
As you all know, Beacon of Hope has been doing AIDS prevention education for fourteen years now and we have wanted for a long time to move into doing other related services, like testing and perhaps even treatment in partnership with licensed clinics. God has finally opened up a solid opportunity for us to take the first steps in this direction. Welcome Ndlovu, our Johannesburg team leader, and two of his colleagues have been offered a Wellness testing contract. They need to raise $2000 to purchase some testing equipment and the first month's supply of test kits.
After the initial purchase of equipment and testing kits, the project will fund itself for the next eleven months, that is for the purchase of testing kits, and it will pay the three workers part-time salaries for 8 days a month. They will repay the initial seed funds, that we will forward them from this fundraiser, out of their monthly contract payments. Those funds will be recycled into their Smart Choices and Discipleship programs for 2019 which will cover seven months of their 2019 budget.
The equipment he needs to up front purchase:
- Two blood pressure machines.
- Two Cardio check machines (Glucose & Cholesterol)
- One height measure machine.
- One weight measure scale.
- Batteries to power the devices.
They will be testing 320 employees each month doing the following tests:
- Glucose & Cholesterol test
- HIV test
- PSA test
- HBA1C diabetes test
Please donate generously to Welcomes Wellness Testing Fund and by doing so help us to fund the Johannesburg 2019 Smart Choices and Discipleship (SC&D) project.
