Increased budgetary needs of The Clinic will require ever increasing demand on the Friends to raise the necessary funds to enable ongoing operations and thus provide much needed free healthcare that allows working people to keep working.

Ongoing Fund Raising, secure grants and special events

During the first two years of its existence, the Friends has doubled its fund raising efforts, thanks to charitable donations, grants and fund raising efforts. We hope to continue this in the coming years by building on the early successes.

All fund raising efforts are carefully monitored during monthly board meetings, as reported by the various committees.
