Currently we have ongoing requests for educational scholarships in several African countries, support for continuing education seminars, and to sponsor African attendees to an IFNA supported Regional Congress in Nairobi, Kenya, originally scheduled for June 14-16, 2020.  Due to COVID19 that meeting has been postponed until June 2020.  We have committed to sponsor 5 African Nurse Anesthetists to this meeting, thanks to the generous donations we have received thus far.  


Please contact us if you would like to direct a donation to a specific cause and we will honor your request. We are seeking a grant of $1200 each to sponsor each additional nurse anesthetist to the Kenyan Congress.  Partial grants are helpful!


We are also continuously seeking donations for other continuing education opportunities and equipment needs for nurse anesthetists from middle and low income countries.

Academic awards:


In 2018, we granted a $3000.00 scholarship to Napthal Ndutiye to attend a nurse anesthesia educational program in Rwanda. Napthal is currently finishing his program the last quarter of 2020 as there were some delays due to COVID19.  The scholarship was paid in two installments of $1500, September 2018 and January 2019.


In 2019 we were honored to sponsor Mary Mungai, Nurse Anesthetist from Kenya, as the Ron Caulk Scholarship winner, affording Mary the ability to complete her final year of study for a Master's in Nursing Education from the UK.  Ms. Mungai is a dedicated and well-known nurse anesthesia educator in Kenya and has helped train many of the nurse anesthetists in the surrounding areas of her country.  


In 2018-19, we sponsored Ms. Lorba Tulay from Liberia for her Master's in Nursing Education.  Ms. Tulay is a practicing nurse anesthetist and educator in Liberia.


Further, In 2018, we granted sponsorship to the World Congress of Nurse Anesthetists for an African nurse anesthetist but unfortunately the visa was denied at the last minute and we were unable to obtain a refund on most of the prepaid expenses.

We granted an educational sponsorship of $900 to Mohammed Abdi Abi Abdilaahi, a nurse anesthetist from Somaliland, to attend the 3rd Annual Scientific Conference of the Uganda Anaesthetic Officers' Association in Kampala, Uganda, October 2018.
