Mission: The Fever Relief Fund (FRF) provides educational and athletic programs geared towards nurturing excellence, building essential values and developing leadership potential among the youth in developing countries.
Results: More than $15 billion worth of medical supplies are discarded each year in the United States. At the same time, less fortunate countries are in desperate need of medical supplies. Fever Relief Fund closes this health care gap by connecting those who have with those who hope. We procure medical and surgical supplies and equipment (crutches, wheelchairs, scalpels, syringes, gloves, antibiotics, beds, exam tables etc.) and deliver them to health care providers in Ghana West Africa. In 2013, Fever Relief Fund will be making 17 shipments of medical supplies and equipment to 10 Government hospitals in Ghana W. Africa. These donated articles are of immeasurable assistance to Fever Relief Fund health care programs overseas, often making the difference between continuing or closing. Fever Relief Fund goal is to raise $346,000 for the shipping program. Fever Relief Fund volunteers will gather, sort, repair, catalog, pack and ship items ranging from needles, syringes and bandages to incubators, computers, ultra sound and operating tables as donations to 10 hospitals. The cost of sending one 8 by 8 by 40 foot container is approximately $40,000. Many suitcases filled with medical supplies for mission teams will be packed as well. The shipments and suitcases cannot go out without your help! We are looking forward to hearing from you. In case you have any questions you can contact us at the numbers given on the form enclosed.

Our goal is to increase active participation in sports and extra-curricular educational activities among young people, especially those who are endowed with ability, yet lack the resources to enable them prosper. FRF is committed to responsible giving and social investment in developing countries such as Ghana, where young people are often saddled with the responsibility of working petty jobs to supplement their parents’ income, or turn to crime in order to make ends meet. FRF will hence work to reduce the financial burden facing the youth as they progress within their chosen sport, recreational activities and educational /professional goals. By providing after-school and other community-based athletic and educational programs, FRF provides appropriate ways to build character and skills among the future leaders of the developing world, while allowing kids to be kids. Data shows that for young people, participation in sports and other hobbies plays an important role of increasing self-esteem and self-worth. Through engaging in sports and outdoor activity, the youth gain a chance to be inspired and motivated, and are able to set goals and take responsibility for their own lives and for their communities.
