Let’s go! Though for now it’s more like “Let’s run!”… Delayed flight and a forced half-kilometer sprint with a backpack and suitcase. What’s the reward? Gate K3 is open. We’ll be in Lomé by evening. And we really want to take you with us!

The plan is to visit our pharmacy’s beneficiaries in Saoudé – a very poor part of northern Togo. We’ll try to connect with you live and introduce you to everyone, show where your money goes, what has already been achieved, and what urgently needs our attention.

What’s planned for later? Dakar and a long journey through the desert to our nutrition center in Mauritania. We’ll do everything to make you feel like you’re there with us. The next day, we continue to Nouakchott, then to Atar, to see if we can help the local community. We know how to fight hunger and manage agricultural projects in tough, desert conditions. Maybe we can be of use? Maybe we’ll come up with something together with you?

Lots of important decisions to make and meetings you can’t miss. If you want, we’ll notify you about every live! To do so in advance, we encourage you to sign up for our Newsletter! Facebook and Instagram can be fickle, sometimes they notify about lives, sometimes they don’t, but we won’t let you down. ?

Urgent Help Needed

Save the Pharmacy for the Poorest in Togo

This amount will allow for equipping pharmacy shelves for the first half of the year. Ania and Mateusz will take care of this, and they will fly to Togo in February and fill the shelves with the most essential antibiotics, antimalarial drugs, and pain relievers. The Saoudé Pharmacy has people to save. It cannot succeed without your support.
