Gifting Hope and Healing Worldwide

Every year, as part of our corporate social outreach efforts, REA selects a worthwhile charity to support in lieu of holiday gift-giving.  This year, our Director of Business Development, Mary Roberts, recommended a special project managed by Pipeline Worldwide, a 501(c)3 based in Phoenix, AZ whose mission is to support sustainable projects in East Africa.  They leverage local professionals and resources to solve global problems.

 

This featured year-end project includes providing power for a hospital that serves a district of 300,000 people in Moyo, Uganda.  Moyo is located in northern Uganda and borders South Sudan.  They’ve experienced decades of war and have been rebuilding their infrastructure for the last 13 years.  Most of the population the hospital serves live in extreme poverty.  Although they are already strained with limited resources, they have embraced the refugee population which is now larger than their local population.

 

During the day, the hospital has power about 80% of the time, but there is no power at night.  Pipeline Worldwide has designed a sustainable solar power solution through a partnership with ASU and McCarthy Building Companies.  Thanks to generous donations and support, they are close to reaching their goal of $40,000 which will provide Moyo General Hospital with the tools to save thousands of lives for years to come. They are about $10,000 short of reaching their 2019 goal to get the project completed by this February.
