Duduetsang hiked to summit the 5, 895 meters Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest in Africa as part of fund raising efforts to for the Happy Hearts Project. Letshego Financial Services Botswana supported Duduetsang’s climb with a total of P60 000 to help in her preparations and contribute to the ultimate success of the fund-raising efforts.
Fergus Ferguson, Letshego CEO for Botswana, said in regards to Duduetsang’s efforts, “We are proud to have assisted Dudu achieve this amazing feat. It is our belief that with our partnership, the dream to build an interim home for children living with cancer in Gaborone will be achieved. We aim to continue supporting such incredible initiatives which go a long way in impacting our communities.”
In partnership with her organisation, Ladies Circle Botswana and Cancer Association of Botswana, Duduetsang aims to help raise a total of P3 million towards building of the Happy Hearts home. The project seeks to house children from outside the Gaborone living with cancer who are in need of secure and comfortable accommodation during their treatment periods at Princess Marina Hospital. Furthermore, both patients and caregivers will be provided with emotional, financial and logistical support during treatment periods.
Childhood cancer is a rising concern in Botswana and as Letshego we aim to continue supporting the government of Botswana and supporting organisations in the battle against the disease.
