Hello dear readers,
Although the main focus of this blog is to spread the word on polio and work towards the total eradication of the disease, it is also a medium to spread information on other health related issues….I will be writing/sharing reports on HIV/AIDs, Tuberculosis, Malaria, Cancer and other health topics.
Today, I read on another social media website (BellaNaija) about a brave young lady helping cancer patients. She developed this really brilliant initiative called 1k4Cancer. Encouraging people to donate money for assisting cancer patients in acquiring their prescription drugs (which by the way are quite expensive).
The idea is to pool one thousand Naira (Nigerian currency) from each person. She writes:”I didn’t know wealthy people who would willingly donate hundreds of thousands or millions. But I knew average earners like myself who would easily part with a thousand naira.”
This is how it works; if one thousand people donated a thousand Naira, that would be a million Naira. If ten thousand people donated a thousand Naira, that would be ten million naira and if one million people donated a thousand Naira, that would be a billion Niara!!!! Imagine the number of people that amount of money would help…..
Kudos to MissWanaWana and her team for a job welldone…
