On Wednesday the 8th November 2017, the Botswana Medical Aid Society (Bomaid) hosted a media briefing at Bomaid Head Offices in Gaborone, as a culmination of the Botswana Kidney Society Up Kgale Hill Charity Climb which was to raise funds for the Botswana Kidney Society. The briefing was attended by representatives from the Botswana Kidney Society, Bomaid Management, Be Active Sports Management, Insych Media and the media fraternity of Botswana.
Bomaid handed over a cheque, total amount of P54,820.00 to the Society which were the total proceeds from the Up Kgale Hill Charity Climb that was held on Saturday the 14th October 2017. As main sponsors for the initiative, the support is in line with Bomaid’s sponsorship values and vision outlined in its strategic direction as a medical aid.
Bomaid’s Principal Officer, Mr Moraki Mokgosana, noted that the event has been a fulfilling challenge and that it was initiated last year, 2016. He commended the Bomaid dedicated team, the organisers and sponsors who were 100% behind the cause.
“We did not plan to raise as much as this and we could not have done it without many of our key clients who have been extremely generous. Because of their unwavering support, we doubled what we raised last year and I applaud all sponsors and partners who contributed to the end result”.
Bomaid takes pride in rallying behind events that make a positive, sustainable impact on communities and that improve the quality of life of Batswana. In reference to the Botswana Kidney Society, Mr Mokgosana concluded that Bomaid would like to maintain a symbiotic relationship with the Society in future as it is a worthwhile cause.

“We are grateful for the funds that have been raised.They will empower the Society to reach its operational objectives which are; to help in kidney research and in promoting awareness on kidney disease in Botswana”.
