We are a virtually zero-overhead organization.  All money donated to Mali Medical Relief has gone to direct patient care.  Mali Medical Relief Fund is a 501(c)3 and all funds received will go directly to needy patients.  All of your donations are tax deductible.

Our organization is run on a volunteer basis and all funds received go directly to medical care, medicines and supplies.  Funds are accounted for and e-mails are sent to those who provide their address showing how the funds were spent and updated periodically here on our website.

 

Celebrating 10 years of Mali Medical Relief

Founded in 2008 with a simple email home, we have grown in size and impact 10 fold. From helping about 30 patients a year, we now help over 300!

Each and every day I am amazed what we are able to accomplish with so little in resources.  In the first 4 months of this year we have helped 71 patients receive emergent medical care at the national hospital. We are helping to save children’s lives everyday. Moreover, we help to save families from financial ruin by providing care at no cost to the patient.

Dr. Diallo and I attended a national conference this year to determine the next best steps for our growing organization. We hope to continue to expand our reach to help an increasing number of children.

2017 Annual Update

Interventions that change lives

I recently met renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Andrew Howard from at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He was speaking to a group of pediatricians at Shriner’s hospital in Spokane. One of the subjects he touched on was global health. What struck me was his emphasis on the importance of working in partnership with local physicians. Reliance on local resources is essential for projects to truly have a lasting impact. This really struck home with me, as we have always been committed to this ideal at Mali Medical Relief. I continue to be astounded by the amazing work we can do with so little. I hope you, our critical supporters are too. We are unique in how we rely exclusively on local expertise to run our organization. This means we help not only individual patients, but also the healthcare system by creating increased demand for technically advanced medical and surgical care. Our physicians can treat increasingly complex cases because we provide the support and resources to make them possible. When we first began nearly 10 years ago, I would never have imagined we would be helping patients with complex surgical needs. I am so proud of the work our team does, and incredibly humbled by the support provided by you, our donors.

This year several interventions stand out in my mind. First is a story of amazing perseverance. 12-year-old Kadiatou* is homeless after both her parents died. She was struck by a car this November and survived the impact. However, it left her with a broken right hip and ankle. Mali Medical Relief jumped in to help right away. Her hip and ankle have been repaired, and she is well on her way to full rehabilitation. The team is also working on helping to stabilize her home situation; truly taking care of the whole patient.

During our last site visit, representatives from the trauma unit were dismayed at how many amputations in pediatric patients they were seeing due to delayed treatment of compound fractures (open bone breaks). They pinpointed the source of the problem, a lack of available external fixation devices. We purchased two additional external fixation devices for the trauma unit to assist with limb sparing surgeries. These timely interventions are critical to prevent amputations and complications from infection.

Finally, we are reaching out to our NGO and government partners who care for pediatric cancer patients. These partners provide the standard chemotherapy for the disease. We were asked to help facilitate diagnostic and adjuvant treatment interventions. As I write, we have just accepted a new patient with neuroblastoma (6 yo boy) who needs additional diagnostic evaluation. These specialized interventions can substantially decrease morbidity and mortality related to pediatric leukemia and tumors.

Your support is essential to the work we do. Every dollar goes to directly fund patient care. Please consider donating to help sustain our ongoing activities. It truly means the world to us at Mali Medical Relief to be able to give hope to families in time of crisis. I welcome questions, suggestions, and ideas from everyone as we look to continue to grow and improve our operations.

With deep gratitude for your ongoing support,

Happy New Year!

 

Friends of Mali Medical Relief,  

I wanted to take the opportunity to extend my gratitude for your support of Mali Medical Relief Fund. This year has been truly remarkable, with us making expansions and continuing our great work throughout Mali.  There have been major social, political, and public health upheavals in the last 12 months, but we are still carrying on with our work. Thank you to our fantastic teams led by Drs. Sylla and Diallo at Gabriel Toure in Bamako, and the MMRF board led by Pierre Dabo in Dioila.

This year we have helped 69 patients in Dioila with major hospitalizations, surgeries, and cases of malaria and pneumonia, malnutrition, and meningitis.

At Gabriel Toure we have helped 57 inpatients with very complex diagnoses and problems. In particular we have funded surgery for colostomy, chemotherapy for acute leukemia, therapy for multiple patients with acute renal failure, cases of HIV and tuberculosis, and many more with cerebral malaria and pneumonia. I have attached the Bamako site review so you can see a complete list of cases and details.

The Ebola epidemic highlighted the need for increasing the number of skilled practitioners in West Africa. Our team is committed to funding a residency slot and has selected a candidate. Best of Luck to Dr. Diallo, as he prepares for his entrance exams. We are cheering for you!
We are so grateful for your continuing support. Please consider us in your annual giving. We accept online donations at our websitewww.malimedicalrelief.org and by snail Mail:

Welcome to Mali Medical Relief

Our Mission Is Simple:  We provide direct medical care to needy patients in Mali in the form of hospital bill and pharmacy cost financing and reimbursement. Your funds pay directly for medical care for those in need. All our staff are volunteers. Founded in 2008, our mission is to serve needy families in Mali who find themselves in medical crisis.  Since our founding, we have helped hundreds of patients pay for life saving medical support, by paying for medicines, medical tests, and surgeries.
