…how does that feel?!? Well, QT has been in a constant process of evolving, changing and learning – creating a heart in Kabubbu - just like the #KabubbuKids you’re partnering. And, yes, it would seem the word sponsorship equates to one-off, short-term giving these days. Partnership means something more enduring and committed. Do you agree!?! [...]

RESTY & BETTY WORKING QUIETLY TO EFFECT SOME GRITTY CHANGE…

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine reported on 20th July 2015 that ‘Testing for malaria reduced over-prescription by more than 70%’. So, adults and children in Kabubbu with cold or flu symptoms only get malaria treatment if our qualified staff test and confirm they have malaria. In Kabubbu we don’t waste donor money! [...]
