Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is a country with a burgeoning population estimated at 80 million people (2016) whose health care supply is not of good quality. The existing hospitals or medical centres are very expensive, i.e not affordable for local population who are very poor. Medical Imaging Center of Kinshasa would like to contribute to the improvement of DRC health care supply and addresses the issue mentioned above by offering a good service to an affordable price to help low-income population. However, to provide such service, MICK needs to make some upfront investment on equipment for its laboratory, imaging system, etc. The obstable to this investment is the lack of resources (funding). That is why, MICK approach you for help. Any cent provided will help to ease and relieve some lives in local community. The money raised will be used as follow:
- Acquire an X-Ray machine whose cost amounts to USD 15000
- Pay airfret and clearance fees: USD 5000
The purchase of that X-Ray machine will be of help since the price of Radiology for local community will be divided by 3. With MICK people will only pay USD 20 instead of USD 60 or USD 80.
