BENEFITING:

Andrew DiMatteo

THE STORY:

The Drexel WeSERVE Africa initiative is a program set up to improve health care in African countries (The Gambia, Mozambique). A total of four undergraduate biomedical engineering students have already made trips to these countries. On their trips they assessed the medical equipment at different hospitals around the countries and repaired the malfunctioning ones. They wrote down their experiences and have posted their journeys on our website: http://drexelweserve.blogspot.com/

The WeSERVE program has currently been entirely dependent on its only contributor, Drexel University. We plan to change that and fundraise enough money to bring some medical equipment on the next journey to replace some of the permanently broken.

SMALL DONATIONS WILL ADD UP. Some of the things the hospitals need the most are cheap. Here is a list of some equipment needed by the hospitals in The Gambia:

Mosquito netting
Bed sheets, Pillow Cases
Thermometers
Scales
Baby cots
Stretchers
Microscopes
Sterilizers
Centrifuges
Refrigerators (for blood)
Antibiotics
Surgical sutures
Surgical set of equipment
Needles
Syringes
