THE STORY:

Cameron Sinclair wrote -

Last week Tropical Cyclone Pam battered past the island nation of Kiribati before building up steam and hitting Vanuatu head on. Naturally the media focused on the destruction in Vanuatu but a number of outlying affected countries have been ignored, Kiribati is one of those nations. We are focusing on one small meaningful project in a very large tragedy - repair Betio Maternity Ward.

Four independent relief and reconstruction groups Real Medicine Foundation, Small Works, Team Rubicon and Young Pioneer Disaster Response have assembled a response team to help reopen the hospital. If successful we will work with the Government of Kiribati on long term sustainable reconstruction.

About Betio Hospital

Betio Hospital is a 23-bed hospital serving about 20,000 people in a very densely populated area of the main island. It is an old colonial facility and has been over capacity for years. The beds are always occupied and very often there is only space for patients on the floors. Before the storm is housed a 16-bed main ward, an 8-bed observation ward and a maternity ward allowing for 16-20 deliveries/month.
