Humbled and inspired by the spirit of generosity pervading the WFH 2016 World Congress and National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) Annual Meeting, the WFH Philanthropy Resource Team wants to say thank you loudly to the hundreds of patients, healthcare professionals and volunteers who stopped by the WFH Resource Centre during Congress. We are grateful to have met so many new friends!
Thank you to the 368 donors—from 92 countries—who supported the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program and made their mark on the WFH World Map. Your generosity spanned the globe from Nigeria to Costa Rica and your contributions represent a vote of confidence in the work we do every day in pursuit of our shared vision of Treatment for All. And to the over 750 of attendees who renewed or purchased their first WFH Membership we are delighted to be in touch with you in the coming months.
Thank you to the 28 NHF Chapters that answered the call to become Champions for the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program and raised $139,800 in support of WFH USA. In particular, we would like to thank our two founding Champions: National Hemophilia Foundation and Hemophilia of Georgia, Inc., as without the support of their leaders Val Bias and Maria Monahan, the results to date would never have reached this level of success.
Most of all, thank you to the patients and leaders from the global bleeding disorder community. Your perseverance and optimism in the face of enormous challenges are the well from which we draw the energy to continue our work on your behalf. We are proud to work alongside you in making a global impact on the lives of those living with a bleeding disorder regardless of where they live.
