GlobeMed is a national network of university students partnered with small grassroots health organizations around the world working in solidarity in the movement for global health equity.
GlobeMed at Cornell's partner CEPAIPA is an adolescent health center and clinic in rural Ecuador, where access to adequate health care is limited. The high school students currently volunteering at the clinic are on their way to becoming community leaders through their work as peer health educators. So far they have hosted a number of health awareness events, and now they are looking to build a rapid HIV testing clinic for their community. They have the space, and trained staff, but funding for supplies is limited. That's where we come in.
We've been given the amazing opportunity to enter the globalgiving challenge. As a chapter, we have 30 day's to raise $4000 from 50 unique donors for our partner. If we are successful, our project remains on globalgiving.org for future donations, which means continuous funding for the clinic. This is our opportunity to make substantial changes in CEPAIPA's community.
Please consider contributing to the clinic today by making a donation to our GloblalGiving page. Our page lays out specifically which lab equipment your generous donation will supply. I encourage you to learn more about our chapter and partner's work by checking out our Facebook pages and blogs linked below. Please feel free to also spread the word to others you think would be interested. You have until April 30 to help the movement for global health equity.
