A third container of supplies for Tambacounda Hospital
Sep 05, 2017
We are thrilled to report that a third container of medical supplies, donated by Project C.U.R.E. and shipped by Le Korsa, arrived to Tambacounda Hospital last week.
This shipment, which included new beds, surgery tables, dental equipment, as well as plenty of basics such as gauze, gloves, and sanitizer, will allow the hospital’s staff to offer better care, and provide greater comfort to the many patients who visit the hospital.
But Tambacounda Hospital’s needs go far beyond supplies. It has difficulties in attracting enough qualified staff, because its salaries are not as high as hospitals in other regions, and its wards are often overcrowded. To help alleviate this problem, we are embarking upon an expansion and redesign of the maternity and pediatric wards with architect Manuel Herz, in close collaboration with Dr. Sylla and other staff. Undoubtedly, we will be sending more supplies to outfit those new wards when the time comes.
In the meantime, we remain grateful to Project C.U.R.E., and to our partners at Tambacounda Hospital, for all their hard work to make this shipment possible.
