Today is Giving Tuesday...

How will you choose to contribute?
Dear <<First Name>>,

For today only, you have the opportunity to double the impact of your donation!

Giving Tuesday is a day for giving back to the causes we care about. As a community member of Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network, we know you care about supporting young leaders in the fight against noncommunicable diseases.

Young leaders like Francis, who is passionate about raising awareness and preventing NCDs in his Rwandan community. As one of the six young leaders in the NextGen Fellowship Program, and leader of the YP-CDN Rwandan Chapter, Francis is deeply engaged with the NCD community.

He spoke with a young adolescent with type 1 diabetes who said, “We rarely get access to medical supplies (syringes, glucometers, and strips) and this creates a gap in daily monitoring of our Blood Glucose Levels. At times we end up being hypoglycaemic and have serious life threatening side effects”.

“These stories and many others pushed me to join and engage with YP-CDN, and it has been an opportunity to apply my goal to advance advocacy and call upon governments and relevant stakeholders to consider NCDs as an agenda to work on, today. It is through YP-CDN that I have been able to draw fellow youth to engage with their communities for prevention of the prevalence of NCDs”. - Francis

It’s time to take the next step and support the young leaders at YP-CDN who are actively fighting against NCDs.

Today only, if you donate through our Facebook Fundraising Page it will be matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

From everyone at YP-CDN, we thank you for your support!
