This clinic might just be our most important project to date!
Malaria is one of the leading causes of death in children under the age of five. Our new clinic will have the life saving equipment, tests and medication to treat this awful disease.Another leading cause of strokes and death among Africans is high blood pressure. Our clinic will be the only place within a 45 minute drive in each direction that will be equipped to provide diagnoses and treatment. Infections often lead to amputation because clinics lack basic medications like antibiotics and items like clean bandages to treat wounds.
“Hope Clinic” will become a safe haven for thousands of people in the area who would never be able to travel to the city for treatment.Many widows suffer needlessly because they cannot afford treatment. Children are dying in villages because they don’t have access to malaria medication.We saved over $100,000 by integrating the clinic into the existing school building. That’s why we can setup the new clinic for only $30,000. This will provide the finishings for the clinic like washrooms, wall partitions to separate the reception area from the patient treatment area and more; but more importantly it will provide needed medical equipment such as:
- Biological Microscope
- Electronic Centrifuge
- Hematocrit Reader
- Glucose Machine
- EDTA Tube
- Capillaries Tube
- Widal Reagents
- Urine Dipsticks
- Immersion Oil
- Blood Typing Serums
- Refrigerator for medication storage
Thank you for considering giving to this project!
