The mailing says the Southern Africa Medical Aid Project (SAMAP), a local group of medical practitioners and anti-apartheid activists, is sending out an urgent appeal for funds to purchase essential medicines for the ANC-Holland Solidarity Hospital in Mazimbu, Tanzania. The mailing says in May 1987, our project was able to send the African National Congress (ANC) thirty-two boxes of medicines and surgical supplies donated by the medical and pharmaceutical community in North, Carolina; transportation and packaging was provided by the Africa Fund and the generous contributions of people like you. The mailing says the ANC-Holland Hospital in Mazimbu, Tanzania is in great need of medical supplies; the hospital was built in 1978 with funds donated by the Dutch Government and land provided by the Government of Tanzania; however the ANC must fund the hospital directly. The mailing says in August 1987, we spoke directly to Dr. Nkadimeng at the ANC Hospital, who expressed great appreciation for what he had received in May from the SAMAP; however, the hospital remains in great need of medicines. The mailing says donations TO SAMAP are tax-deductible, through sponsorship of our project by the Africa Fund. The mailing includes a newspaper article "Refugees Get Medical Aid From Triangle".
