Bid for a bright future!

THANK YOU

for contributing to the succes

of our Virtual Auction!

We were thrilled that so many of you from different parts of the world joined our virtual auction event - it was an exciting new online adventure for us! 

We were bowled over by your generosity as the auction raised close to 83,000 CHF, well exceeding our target of 50,000 CHF. 

 

Silent bidding began at noon on May 20th and

ended with the live-streamed event on May27th!

Special thanks to

Christina Robinson, Auctioneer

The funds generated will improve the working environment for the dedicated and extremely skilled midwives that we have supported throughout their training - as well as a much safer birthing environment for pregnant mothers in rural parts of Ethiopia. Especially during the pitch dark and long nights as funds raised will enable us to install enhanced solar systems which provide more life-saving light and power as well as two refrigerators for essential drugs and vaccinations.

 

We plan to install more than 20 enhanced solar systems in 2021 through our local Ethiopian partners, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, and the Solar Energy Foundation.

 

The innovative Fund-a-need auction lots turned out to be extremely popular with our bidders:

 

12 Enhanced Solar Systems

16 Hamlin College Midwife Room & Board

6 Hamlin College Midwife Tuition/Annual Scholarship Fees

16 Hamlin College Midwife Room & Board

202 Solar Headlamps and

3 Donkeys for Water & Schooling for the Owner's Children!

Thank you so very much!
