Join Team Taasa this April as we run in the Brooklyn Half Marathon for the second year in row! Our goal for this year is to raise $30,000 to provide our Kalungu medical staff with complementary housing, a full kitchen, and daily meals. Our volunteer runners are already preparing for the race!
Taasa Health strives to provide the highest quality medical care to our patients, which means we need to take great care of our medical staff. Taasa provides benefits for our employees that include food and rent, to make sure they can take home as much of their salary as possible to care for their families.
Housing: Our staff currently lives in rental homes in a nearby village. We want to build housing for our clinicians and other staff so they can live on-site at the clinic’s 12-acre property with their families. This separate facility will allow us to hire additional staff over time (nurses, lab technicians, receptionists) and provide them with comfortable, private accommodations for their personal life. Staff housing will also ensure that clinicians are on-site for any medical emergencies around the clock.
Meals: We also intend on building a kitchen for the clinic and staff on the property. This will allow our staff to prepare fresh meals for fresh daily meals for any malnourished patients and for our team. Donations will go towards constructing the kitchen facility and stocking it with food for the coming months. Longer-term, we are clearing agricultural fields to plant crops for the clinic and neighboring community.
Through your support of Team Taasa reaching its Brooklyn Half Marathon goal, Taasa Health will be able to break ground on staff housing and a kitchen, and start providing daily meals to our staff.
