Phase 1 of the ADRA/AdventistHelp Field hospital that is being constructed in Kyaka 2 Refugee settlement is nearly completed. Camp size is still rapidly increasing and is now well over 100 000 refugees that have fled from the war torn regions of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
Current medical facilities are completely overrun and health services in the camp aren’t able to cope with the rapidly enlarging population. 80% of the camp are women and children, hence our focus is on women and child health.
This fundraiser is to enable us to purchase essential and lifesaving equipment to treat the patients who will be coming to our facility. We are focusing on setting up inpatient areas for children and women.
These are the items we are fundraising for:
- 10 more adult beds with bedside units - we already have 50.
- 40 more cots with with bedside units - NB! We only have 10.
- 3 birthing beds.
- 30 infusion pumps to regulate fluid administration in ill patients - especially children with dehydration.
- 1 ECG Machine for the emergency unit.
- 1 autoclave
- 1 defibrillator
- 2 infant warmers
We only use refurbished quality medical equipment to enable us to stretch the funds to serve more patients, and to share with the existing medical facilities.
A baby cot costs 250 euro.
A bed costs 275 euro.
A birthing bed costs 600 euro.
An infusion pump costs 125 euro.
Thank you in advance for supporting this fundraiser - every bit helps!
