(Frederick, Maryland) – October 11, 2017 – Welocalize, global leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, is a sponsor at the upcoming charity event to raise awareness about the transformative work carried out by The Aslan Project, a non-profit organization working to improve access to pediatric cancer care in low-income countries. This special evening gala event is taking place on Saturday, October 14, 2017, from 6PM onwards at the law offices of Jones Day in NW Washington, DC 20001.
Founded in 2012, The Aslan Project brings together a diverse group of volunteer medical experts, parents and advocates to champion the cause of pediatric and adolescent cancer care in low-income countries. Welocalize CEO Smith Yewell is Chairman of The Aslan Project.
“In the United States, more than 80 percent of children with cancer survive. In developing countries, the reverse is true. The Aslan Project’s mission is to redress the inequality by providing sustainable pediatric and adolescent cancer health care systems in developing countries,” said Smith Yewell, Chairman of The Aslan Project. “The charity needs the continuous support of sponsors to ensure children and their families receive the right cancer treatment and care. Welocalize is proud to support this special evening to help generate awareness and raise funds to enable the team to continue its fantastic work.”
The evening event starts at 6PM with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction. There will be a short program presentation detailing the latest work of The Aslan Project followed by fund raising activities. To find out more information about The Aslan Project, visit www.aslanproject.org
