Fundraising Dinner Gala
We will officially be launching The Omer Yembe Foundation as part of festivities marking our 1st Annual Fundraising event on March 19th, 2016, at The Grand Hotel Dallas on 7815 LBJ Freeway, Dallas Texas 75251 starting at 8pm.
The Omer Yembe Memorial Medical Center was thus opened in Mbot on June 1st, 2015, in a facility that the late Dr. Yembe started building before his death in 2012. We have a fulltime nurse. Our plan is to complete the existing building structure, and provide a reliable water and light source via a borehole and pump and a solar driven generator, respectively. We also need to hire part time physicians from the nearest biggest cities to address more complicated medical issues. Me plan to deploy medical supplies as soon as the funds are available and a mission trip will be deployed in the spring or summer of 2016. These projects have a total budget estimate of $75,000.
Our Dinner Gala will seek to raise funds for the proper completion of this project.
