The pediatric unit of Mt. Meru hospital has temporarily moved to the Levolosi clinic. Unfortunately it is off the hospital grid for electricity. Without electricity and lights giving proper care to the patients was difficult. Orphans Foundation Fund was able to purchase the necessary wiring and connectors to connect to a nearby generator. Now all the children in the pediatric unit can be cared for, any electrical medical equipment can be operated when needed, and the nurses can see their patients with proper lighting.
This past Friday Orphans Foundation Fund presented a new HP computer to Mt. Meru Hospital as part of the program to further empower their medical technology. The new computer will allow the doctors in the hospital to access the latest information regarding the treatments for various diseases, information to advice patients on nutritional wellness to prevent illness, and a quick way in which to consult other physicians abroad while working collaboratively.
Have you ever had a cavity? Then you know the tremendous relief felt after getting it taken care of by a skilled dentist. Orphans Foundation Fund has given a costly drill to the dental department of the Mt. Meru Hospital here in Arusha Tanzania. Now more people can come to receive the relief of dental care. Whether the gift is great or small we try to make steps towards empowering the community and helping those in need. How about donating this Christmas to Orphans Foundation Fund to make a difference in the lives of those in need here in Tanzania?
Doctor James Lace and his colleagues from Childhood Health with Orphans Foundation Fund continue their ongoing support of Mt. Meru Hospital and their dedicated staff. With the donation of a refrigerator and a large supply of PPD, which is used to test for Tuberculosis, brought to Tanzania by Adam and Tatiana will help to save many lives. It is through partnerships spurred by compassion, and responibility to help the community, that keeps our projects and societal good growing.
