We provide appropriate medical equipment that is suitable for use in hospitals with few resources. Such equipment must be effective, reliable and economical to use in any remote or poor location.
Hospitals in poor countries often lack reliable supplies of electricity, oxygen and other resources. Without these, much complex anaesthesia technology fails to work or is too expensive to run.
We only donate equipment that is fit for purpose in resource-poor locations. This enables healthcare workers to treat and care effectively for their patients.
The photo on this page shows a portable anaesthesia machine in use, at a location without electricity or compressed gases. The operation is to repair cleft lip and palate of a child in rural Somalia.
