A Change of Course

Dear UHRU Supporter,

With a heavy heart, I’d like to inform you about our decision to close our Georgia Colon Cancer Prevention Project. Since its inception in 2018, our program has helped screen over 88,900 Georgians for cancer.

UHRU will instead operate as my family foundation to continue our important work in rural India. We are grateful to continue to serve this important cause.

The past few years have been challenging. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted healthcare delivery and funding trends, and thus also impacted UHRU’s ability to function and maintain the Georgia Colon Cancer Prevention Project. As a board of directors, we explored numerous options to keep the project running, but each one came with its own set of challenges and limitations. We understand that our decision could be disappointing for the people who benefit from our services, and we want to assure you that it was not an easy decision to make.

We are immensely proud of the impact the Georgia Colon Cancer Prevention Project has made on the community, and we are grateful for the opportunity to have been of service. We want to thank you for your support and guidance through our journey. We sincerely hope that our efforts have had a positive impact and that the community will continue to be served by other organizations.

We have stopped accepting donations on our website and other giving mechanisms. We have also informed all major donors. We will inform all coalition partners by June 1 and are developing a plan to distribute the remaining Georgia Cancer Coalition funds among those partners. We would like to dissolve Community Action Board by June 2023 and will dissolve the board of directors by August 2023.

Once again, we want to express our sincere gratitude for the opportunity to have served, and we wish the organization all the best for its future endeavors.
