What is Drops of Aid Campaign?
It is a fundraising campaign that allows us to support assistance programs we have developed for 34 years in order to contribute to the welfare of children with cancer. Each drop will cost Bs. 20.000,00 and can be donated using a credit card at www.gotasdeayuda.com. You can also make a bank transfer or a bank deposit. The goal is to raise more than 100.000 drops which will help us to continue fulfilling our mission and objectives.
How can you guarantee the raised money will be actually invested in the foundation and its patients?
We are a 34-year-old institution with a well-known trajectory that gives children and adolescents up to 18 years of age that are cancer patients the means they need to diagnose and treat the disease.
This campaign seeks to take full advantage of technology to make donating an innovative and easy experience for our donors in order to raise the funds we need. Many collaborators and prestigious companies have joined our cause so as to make it possible to provide high safety standards regarding donations by electronic transactions.
