In July 2013, a group from Edina Covenant Church traveled to Bukoba, Tanzania to visit COSAD's various sustainable development projects. COSAD's medical clinic is ready to be operational... providing care to people who would normally have to travel hundreds of miles to receive any type of advanced medical care. The clinic needs some initial "start-up" money to get off the ground.

Anna Swanson, one of the members of the original team, felt led to train for a marathon to raise money for the clinic. She is joined by several members of Edina Covenant who have formed relay teams to run the marathon alongside her and fundraise for this very worthy cause. They'll be running the Minneapolis Marathon (not to be confused with the Twin Cities Marathon) on June 1!

The clinic's operating costs are amazingly low by Western standards. Gifts of any size make such a huge difference.

- $10 provides 2 malaria tests

- $25 provides much-needed antibiotics

- $100 pays a support staff's salary for an ENTIRE month

- $300 covers a month's RENT for the clinic

During their visit to Bukoba, the team met a man who was caring for his dying mother. He was extremely distraught. There was no way for him to obtain any type of pain medication for her. It simply wasn't available. He was deeply appreciative of the ibuprofen that the team provided, but clearly it wouldn't provide true relief of her extreme pain. It was a very poignant reminder of the lack access to simple medical care. He would have given anything to help his mother, but there was no medication within reach.

Each gift toward our "Run... the Clinic!" team will go toward our goal of supporting COSAD in their effort to bring much-needed health care to this region of Tanzania.
