Grand Opening of Negele Arsi General Hospital & Medical College
July 27, 2017
BENEFITING: ETHIOPIA HEALTH AID INC
Our hospital opens soon to serve 1.2 million people in rural Ethiopia where no hospitals existed before. We need your help to purchase a CT Scanner, life-saving medical equipment to help us accurately diagnose and cure deep-seated internal diseases.
Imagine dying on the road from a minor head injury. Or having cancer lesions with a stench that lingers long after you leave a room. Or a mass in your throat as large as a football. Sadly, these are very real cases of patients we served in rural Ethiopia. For the past 6 years and 12 missions, Ethiopia Health Aid has been providing care to the poorest communities in rural Ethiopia.
We see 1,500 patients or more during our missions; and despite the free medical and hospital care we provide, less than 2% of these patients ever make it to the hospital to which we refer them. Why? Because until now, the closest hospital was in the city, 4 hours away by bus — much longer by donkey cart. We can change all that. Thanks to the kindness of our volunteers and supporters, we are making hospital care available where none existed before. Join us as we build hope in Oromia. Please donate today.
