My Message

GIVING BACK & PAYING IT FORWARD!

Welcome friends and colleagues,

Most of us are fortunate to live in countries that are so progressive and supportive of a high quality of life.  For example, our health care systems are highly regarded around the world as systems that provide excellent standards of care.  Through volunteering with Cuso International, I have an incredible opportunity to use my business knowledge and skillsets to give back, and pay my good fortune forward to a group of people who need our help.

THE OPPORTUNITY:  IMPROVING MEDICAL SERVICES IN NORTHWESTERN ETHIOPIA

In Ethiopia, medical standards are often overwhelmed and compromised by the sheer volume and demand for services. The Benishangul-Gumuz (BSG) Regional Health Bureau, located in Asosa, wants to improve their effectiveness in providing quality health services, with a primary focus on health promotion and disease prevention for mothers and their children. BSG is an emerging regional state with over a million people. Currently there are 2 general hospitals, 37 health centres, and 398 health posts operating as primary health care units for the general community. Services delivered by the Bureau include child and maternal health services, nutritional programs, prevention and control of malaria and HIV/AIDs, and adolescent health and youth friendly services. The Bureau also has an oversight role in the regulation of health institutions, distribution logistics, workforce assignments, capacity-building, and monitoring and evaluation activities.

Starting in April, I’ll be partnering with the Regional Health Bureau members in various departments to provide health workers with technical support – including training, mentoring, gap analysis, and capacity-building activities – to help them deliver relevant and engaging health services, improve client satisfaction and increase service delivery. 

HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

As a charity organization, Cuso International asks all volunteers to fundraise to help sustain our work in this vital area. Through the generosity of people like you, we can make a real difference for many Ethiopian mothers and their children, because for every dollar I raise, Global Affairs Canada contributes $9!  Tax receipts are available for donations of S10 or more. Receipts are also available for my American friends.  You can follow my volunteer updates and progress through this page and my personal blog @ http://davemvincent.blogspot.ca/.

Thank you for your time and generosity!
