On this, 4th day of November 2011, Wanadamu turns 4 months since it’s inception. Your contributions in whatever capacity be it in terms of time, registration and ideas has been phenomenal and has seen us not only increase our capacity but also successfully attend to 55 appeals in Nairobi, Nakuru, Eldoret, Mombasa, Meru and other parts of the country. With word spreading out resulting in increased request for blood donors, we initiated phase 3 of Wanadamu where we conduct manual registration of willing donors in our database to reach out to those who are not active online/on social media.
We would like to thank the Village Market for hosting us on the 21st and 22nd October 2011, Wamathai for hosting us during his October event at the MJ Centre on the 22nd October 2011, the Picha Mtaani crew for hosting us during the Heal the Nation documentary launch at city hall way on the 23rd October 2011 and finally the Kinanda Festival team for having us during their event at K.A.R.I (Kenya Agricultural Research Institute on the 30th October 2011. We would also like to thank every single person who did a post on face book, twitter or blogged about Wanadamu before, during and after the ‘Heroes donate blood’ online Campaign. Special thank you to the team of 11 who played a key role in making the online campaign a success. This, together with the media coverage we have gotten has seen the database grow by 10% between October 20th and November 4th. During our interactions, various questions and requests for clarification have been forwarded to us, which has prompted us to create a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ article, in a bid to address standard questions and concerns. Please feel free to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill in the contact form with questions you may have that we haven’t addressed here and we will be happy to address them.
