Project Plus One’s New Years Letter

2012 pp1.JPG

As we begin this new year, we at Project Plus One look back over the last three years since our founding and know that we could not have reached this point today without you. We want to take this opportunity today to thank you for your continual support of our organization and the Bairo Pite Hospital in Timor-Leste. Together, we are all dedicated to strengthening a healthcare system that cares for hundreds of patients a day who face extreme hardship and social inequality.

We here at Project Plus One know that such a mission requires the kind of commitment that is both long lasting and unwavering. Equally as important, it requires a strong community. Thank you for joining with us these past years. Together we look forward to the next chapter of our work this year as we begin the implementation of our tuberculosis treatment initiative. We are calling this the Doorstep Treatment Support program and together with our partners, the Millennium Campus Network, the British Medical Society, and the Bairo Pite Hospital, we are aiming to bring tuberculosis medication and disease education to over 125 patient households across Timor-Leste a month for several years to come. You can learn more about this program through our web site here.

Happy New Year,
Paul, Nate & the rest of the Project Plus One team
