Thank you for joining us for the 9th Annual Walk For the Bu
DATE: Saturday, October 10th, 2020
WHERE: Where ever you are, when ever you can.
TIME: Complete the walk by October 10th.
‘Walk For the Bu’ in 2020 will be a 10KM Walkathon and fundraiser completed virtually by October 10th with the goal of raising $10,000 to send a container of medical supplies. The event provides KBNF with the resources we need to continue making medical miracles in West Africa by delivering life-saving medical support.
Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation is a charity saving lives by tackling the most complicated medical conditions in West Africa and beyond: brain and spine.
- This year, more than 5 million patients will have no access to qualified neurosurgeons - resulting in otherwise avoidable disability and death.
- Africa accounts for 15% of the global neurosurgical disease, but has access to less than 1% of the global neurosurgeon community while the US and Canada have 1 neurosurgeon for every 69,000 people...
- Africa has just one Neurosurgeon for every 2,028,000 people. Liberia has a single neurosurgeon for the entire country of 4.8 million.
KBNF wants to change these facts. Walk with us and help make a difference.
What we have accomplished so far:
Thank you for joining us virtually to make a difference!
