Two rural clinics desperately lack basic needs and the third needs replacements & basic updates
A needs assessment was conducted by ICMC of the 3 clinics to improve governance with other Sikensi villages and the government. An initial site visit to the Katadji and Bacanobu B clinics showed they are severely under-resourced and in desperate need of basic supplies. Katadji and Bacanobu B don't even have blood pressure kits! The level of care was shocking and extremely disheartening.
Braffoueby is a semi-private clinic that opened in 2013. Because it is partially sustained by ICMC, the clinic has cared for about 27,000 people, never turning anyone away. Poverty makes it impossible for many to pay. Medical supplies and equipment are antiquated and worn. For example, pregnant women are forced to find an ultrasound elsewhere; many just don't go and then face emergency situations during birthing.
The clinic in Braffoueby is too small for the large number of people who enter. Well babies receiving vaccinations are mixed in with sick and diseased patients. The Director works in a cramped closet that doubles as storage space with little access to air. The Hospital Sisters Mission is donating the supplies and equipment. All we need to do is get it there and buy the container to use as space.
Send a container filled with medical supplies and equipment/use container for well babies room
Sending a 40' container filled with the 3 clinics’ most-needed medical supplies and equipment will be lifesaving for the population. We listed essentials needed during the needs assessment and by working closely with the Ministry of Health. Furthermore, the 40' container will be converted to space for the well babies and other patients, storage and an office for the Director.
If this container is shipped filled with medical supplies, it will impact 9,000 people
Too many women are injured during childbirth and many times the babies have a compromised delivery. We have an opportunity to support these people by providing the tools the health professionals need. The goal is disease prevention, as it is too expensive to cure and much better to prevent disease. These clinics are centers of learning about disease prevention, sanitation, hygiene and nutrition. Sadly, the government supplies very little medicine, supplies and equipment.
97%-The transport of container
This displays the maximum incremental additional funding the campaign could receive (Maximum Funding Amount (MFA) less Minimum Funding Goal)). For example, if the MFA is $100,000 and the MFG $10,000, it would show the difference of $90,000 here.
