Mission

The Princeton Tower Club has always been committed to helping people abroad with lesser means improve their quality of life. Through its annual Bachelor Auction, a night which most Tower members can remember fondly, Tower has donated significant sums of money to organizations like Heifer International and Partners in Health in the past.

Watsi is an example of an organization that does its best to provide access to basic healthcare/procedures to patients that otherwise would not be able to afford them. With many of our members currently in the non-profit/public health sectors, it would be fitting if Tower alumni could join together and support this worthy cause!

Here's to Tower, she's True Blue...

Margret

Margret is a 69-year-old woman - a mother of five children and a grandmother to 13 children. She lives in a thatched house with her family. She and her husband are farmers and rely on seasonal farm products for their income. Due to a recent drought on their land, they do not have any farm products to sell. Margret and her husband are aging and shared that they are limited in how they can care for themselves. They also shared that their children are married but do not have stable jobs yet to help support the family. One week ago, Margret’s poor vision caused her to fall on her walk to the farm. She fell on her left hand and can longer use it or put any weight on it. Her daughter-in-law bought her to the hospital for an X-Ray. After an assessment by the doctor, she was diagnosed with a left distal humerus fracture, and surgery was recommended. Currently, Margret is experiencing pain in her left hand and requires 24-hour care from her daughter-in-law. On October 26th, Margret will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation, with our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). This surgery will alleviate her pain and bring healing and restoration to the functioning of her left hand. She will be able to carry out her day-to-day activities and take care of herself again. AMH is requesting $941 to help fund this procedure. Margret shared, “I am in pain. I hope I get treated soon and be able to use my hand again. Please help me.”
