Global Medicare Foundation is a nonprofit organization, with the aim to provide access to health care and health information to undeserved communities in Cameroon. We work collaboratively with local and international partners to we save lives and improve health, especially among women and children in hard to reach communities with little or no health care facilities. We accelerate improvements on health access on many platforms among which — research, policy, trainings, vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, service innovations, project implementation and systems. Our young and dynamic team harnesses our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity to meet set goals. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.

    Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Global Medicare Foundation has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.

    With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success.

    Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.


    Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!


    Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
