MAMA ASHU HOSPITAL is a hospital located in the rural town of Chacas, Peru at 11,000 feet above sea level. It is a hospital offering free medical service to the poor people in Peru. The hospital now has 40 beds, an emergency room, two delivery rooms, two surgical theatres and a small laboratory and radiology department. Funds for medicines and other necessary supplies are dependent entirely on volunteers and donations from the public. The hospital provides free health services to over 8000 people, who without the help of the founders and public, they wouldn’t have any medical care at all.
Therefore, we the medical students under the supervision of Dr. Jackie Pando Kelly are hoping to organize a fundraising program to collect enough money to buy medicines and other healthcare equipment for the hospital.
