Health On the Net Foundation 'permanently discontinued' (6)

13 March, 2023

Yes Najeeb, I know the feeling, many atime the rich world seems to not acknowledge good works by small people/ organizations and who loses? 

I felt the same and I am sure many of us, HIFA members, feel the same when after so many notices and requests for support for the sterling work that our organization is doing for access and use of accurate health information, we are yet to register major sponsors / grant givers. 

I must say that so fobt [few?] know much about the Health on Net Foundation but I hope that we have not heard the last of it going by your strong testimony of its great work for public good.
