Melchizedek Hospital Fundraiser

THE STORY:

Melchizedek is a private hospital that is devoted to providing service to the poor in Nairobi, Kenya. The hospital is located within walking distance of the infamous Kibera Slums, where approximately 170,000 people live on less than $1 USD a day. By providing cheap healthcare, the hospital does not generate significant revenue and as a result is critically under-equipped. Consequently, many patients are referred to other, more expensive, hospitals which they simply cannot afford.

This $2100 will go toward buying an Ultrasound Printer ($1500) and 3 batteries ($200 each) which are used to power various medical machinery such as an EKG machine. These items will allow the hospital to treat more patients and increase revenues. This revenue will then allow the hospital to buy more much needed equipment. In particular, this additional revenue generated can help the hospital afford a washing machine and dryer. Currently, all scrubs and bedding are washed by hand and dried via clothesline, subjecting the cleaning crew to highly infectious waste.

Any amount helps and your donation will go a long way toward helping the poor of Nairobi.
