Due to circumstances beyond Bridge2Aid’s control, the charity needs to raise at least £50,000 before 31 March 2014 to ensure its vital work can continue.
In the past few months, B2A has been the victim of high level organised financial fraud, as well losing a significant amount of funding when a major grant was reduced at the last minute as a result of the current economy.
Without this much-needed funding there is a very real threat to Bridge2Aid’s planned work of delivering vital emergency dentistry to more than three million people over the next three years.
Commenting on Bridge2Aid’s current situation, Mark Topley, CEO, said: ‘Please forgive the direct nature of this appeal but we need your help, and we need it now. Without this funding B2A will be unable to continue its work in East Africa or anywhere else. The urgency of this appeal cannot be overstated and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for any help you can give us.’
Bridge2Aid is asking for individual and private donations in units of £40, £80 and £100 that, with Gift Aid, will total £50, £111 and £133, respectively. In addition, the charity is asking people to spread the word of this need within their community.
