Dear Colleagues and Friends:

I hope this message finds you well. As many of you know, Dr. Alisha and I established The Capuia Foundation, a 501c(3), in 2015 to improve the economic conditions in Angola, Africa by improving access to quality healthcare, education and agriculture.

The good doctor and I believe that a strong, sustainable economy must be driven by strong healthcare infrastructure. To this end, we built a primary care clinic Centro Medico Bom Samaratino in Cacuaco, Angola (right outside of the capital of Lunda). We trained and hired Angolan doctors, nurses, phlebotomists and lab technicians. In the last two years, the clinic has served and subsidized care for over 1,100 Angolans (unduplicated) who could not otherwise afford care.

Once the clinic was built, up and operating, roads, lights and water came to the town of Cacuaco as well. The Capuia Foundation is developing “with” community and the impact is far and wide reaching. Communities are getting well physically, mentally, socially, economically.

Total clinic operational cost is $62,000 per year. This includes payment for the shipment of medical equipment and supplies from the U.S. to Angola on a quarterly - basis and the salaries of each employee of the clinic.

For the last two years, the Capuia Family has made robust donations to keep the clinic afloat. Now, we are inviting our friends and colleagues to join us in this endeavor.

The Capuia Foundation has many proud accomplishments to share. We’d like to extend a personal invitation to you to join us on Thursday, February 8th from 6:00PM-8:30PM at the Elliot Center located at 1226 SW Salmon Street, Portland, Oregon 97205. Come learn more about the progress we’ve made and how you can help.

Please save the date, plan to show up for live entertainment, good-food, African-Art exhibit and an opportunity to partner with awesome mission driven work!

 

Please RSVP by January 26, 2018
