If you want to get involved and donate money to this project, please Contact us for details or see below.
There are several ways you can get involved in this project. Kari and Asle need donations to cover their travel and living expenses, as they are not getting paid while serving at the Soddo Christian Hospital. They also have a need to buy medical equipment and accessories.
Until now the donations have been sent through World Medical Mission, and this organization has been of great help. However, their wish is to support short term projects only. As Kari and Asle's project would not be considered short term by their definition, we are very happy that the Mosvold family via the Astri Foundation is willing to help us. As before, the donations are tax deductable in the US and all the money benefits Kari and Asle's work; there is no administrative expenses. At the end of the year, the donors will receive a summary from Astri Foundation of their contributions.
The checks should be issued to 'Astri Foundation' and on the memo line, please write SODDO, Dr. A. Aarsland.
The address is:
11777 Katy Freeway, suite #470
