Saving Premature Babies
Feedback from Dr Harbauer at Haydom Hospital, Tanzania, where we helped to supply a special machine to keep premature babies and sick infants alive by helping them to breathe.Dr Harbauer told us that the nurses are very happy with the equipmnent that has been in use ever since it arrived. The hospital is now getting referals from other hospitals with premature babies but who do not have the necessary equipment.
Equipment for Tanzania
Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide has donated an oxygen concentrator to St Walburg's Hospital in Tanzania. This vital machine generates oxygen from air and will provide a reliable oxygen supply at the small rural hospital, that serves a quarter of a million people. St Walburgs desperately needs oxygen concentrators, as using oxygen cylinders are expensive and the nearest fillng plant is too far away. the hsopital will be able to contiue to support the increasing number of patients seeking medical treatment and receiving surgery.
Aid to Syria
Emergency anaesthetic equipment has been sent to Syria in response to an urgent plea for assistance from a doctor who recently visited the country with the team from BBC 1 Panorama programme.
