Most of us take the availability of anaesthesia for granted. But millions of people in the developing world are not so fortunate. In poor countries, many hospitals lack suitable anaesthetic equipment, medicines and trained staff. Imagine needing an amputation or a Caesarean section without anaesthesia?
Without anaesthesia emergency operations cannot be performed and many patients do not survive, especially women in childbirth and children. Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide was formed to ensure that the benefits of anaesthesia are available wherever needed so that patients can receive the treatment they need, safely and painlessly.

Please help our new Solox Project
Solox is a unique solar powered system to generate and store oxygen from the air.
Many hospitals in low-income countries have limited or unreliable supplies of oxygen. Oxygen is vital for treating patients. It is used for resuscitation and anaesthesia and is an essential life-saving therapy for pneumonia, the biggest cause of death in children worldwide.
Solox is a system that harnesses energy from the sun to run an oxygen concentrator, a device that generates oxygen from atmospheric air, and stores the oxygen in pressurised vessels. This system could generate millions of litres of oxygen utilising free unlimited resources – the sun and air.
Ensuring a reliable low-cost supply of oxygen in low-resourced hospitals will improve healthcare and save lives. Please help our project by making a donation at TheBigGive or visit our donation page now. Thank you.
