Campaign Ends, Work Continues
The Close the Gap Campaign of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) officially came to a close on December 31, 2014. This was the WFH’s first multi-year campaign, raising US$5.4 million to help improve care for those who need it most. The corporate portion of the campaign raised nearly US$3.5 million from existing and new WFH corporate partners. The community portion of the campaign raised an outstanding US$1.9 million.
To honour this solidarity within the bleeding disorders community, WFH patron Jan Willem Andre de la Porte pledged to donate an additional $2 for every $1 donated to the campaign. Be sure to read the April 2015 campaign bulletin for a full list of campaign supporters and key volunteers.
The Close the Gap Campaign has helped enable the WFH to continue its work and reach more patients than ever before. It’s not too late to be part of this legacy. You can contribute to help the WFH meet its ongoing needs and help those around the work gain access to the care they need and deserve. Because you care, we can accomplish so much together.
