Dear Foregen Supporters,
Welcome back to our most recent newsletter. We have some important updates for you, and an overview of the best parts of June.
What’s Happened Since Last Time?
- We are continuing our talks with the organizations we met at Knowledge for Growth, and have expanded our contacts to another important organization in Belgium - we’ll have more to report on this in the next week or so.
- The collection and testing of tissue is an ongoing process and we will send out updates from our tissue supplier as we get them. In addition to this, Foregen is taking proactive steps to acquire more partners and sources globally to ensure a healthy supply.
- We will be registering for two conferences, one in Hamburg and one in Brazil, that will offer us opportunities to talk with investors as well as assist us in our search for more tissue suppliers as mentioned above. More details to come on this soon.
- We are currently looking for a WordPress developer with experience in elementor to work on web development at Foregen. This will be a paid, independent-contractor position. If you are interested, please apply at this survey link with your experience and examples of your previous work.
- As mentioned previously, one of Foregen’s partner groups, Droit au Corps, currently has a petition open which our supporters may be interested in checking out. It details an "Appeal for a debate" on the conditions for consent to circumcision, aimed at abandoning male genital cutting.
- For the month of June we reached a total of $9,540 in donations, which helps us move forward with the next parts of our mission! Be sure to inform other activists, friends and family about Foregen and the science we’re pursuing to one day help provide genital integrity to men around the world. Our overall total to date is $472,998 - Let’s keep it up.
Tell Me Something Interesting
- A new article from Science Daily details a new paper where scientists are looking at how stem cells could be used to help ‘investigate growth of new tissue [...] to treat babies with severe intestinal impairments.’ As one of the authors of the paper states ‘Right now, these babies can either get a transplant, or live on IV nutrition, which really impacts the way they can interact with the world and develop. There has to be a better way.’
