In all of Africa, there is only one hospital that provides high-standard cardiac surgery free of charge. That single hospital — the Salam Center — is staffed by people dedicated to providing life-saving medical care to those who would otherwise not be able to afford it.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights maintains that all people — no matter where they are from or how much money they make — have the right to a basic level of health and wellbeing. But in many areas of Africa the effects of war and poverty mean that when people get sick, the resources for a cure are not within their reach and their rights can't be realized.
No one should have to suffer with a serious medical condition just because they can't pay for a cure. With perseverance and dedication, we can help bring the world into a future where everyone can exercise their right to healthcare, no matter what their circumstances.
It won't be easy getting there, but small steps have the power to move mountains. The Salam Center is already making a difference by saving lives and providing a sustainable model for bringing quality healthcare, free-of-charge, to each patient in need of treatment.
Please show your support for people's universal right to healthcare and thank the Salam Center for their vital work in Africa, free of charge.
I am writing today to thank you for upholding the fundamental human right of adequate medical care, a right to which every person in the world is entitled.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights maintains that all people -- no matter where they are from or how much money they have -- have the right to a basic level of health and wellbeing. But in Africa, millions suffer from severe health complications yet lack the resources for safe, reliable treatment. Because of corruption at the international, political, and corporate levels, their inalienable right to a cure is not being upheld.
In all of Africa, the Salam Center is the only hospital that provides high-standard cardiac surgery free of charge. And the hospital's vital work wouldn't be possible without your time, effort, and compassion.
Thank you for increasing citizens' access to state-of-the-art healthcare services to which they are entitled, and for moving us one step closer to a world where all people have equal access to their fundamental right to health and wellbeing.
