Current Fundraising Campaign
As per the Foundation’s strategy, our near-term goals is to equip the hospital with necessary utility infrastructure and medical equipment so that deliveries may be performed onsite before the end of 2013. As such, our current campaign goal is to raise $85,000 to fulfill the following 2013 priorities:
- Make provision of 24/7 electricity by installing solar panels to produce 5 KWH/h electricity
- Purchase laboratory equipment to enable simple blood and urine analysis on site
- Purchase other surgical and medical equipment including a portable ultrasound machine
- Purchase a basic vehicle to transport critical cases to city hospitals
Since the CHILD Foundation is a CRA-registered charity, all donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be issued promptly.
We thank you for your support.
A Compelling Case:
Prior to the opening of this hospital, the fatality rate among women and children under the age of five years was an estimated 4,000% higher than in developed countries. An estimated 1,200 children were born in the village every year and about 130 died every year before reaching the age of five year. In addition about 15 women lost their life during delivery alone.
As part of its vision, the CHILD Foundation aims to reduce mortality rate by 80% or save over 100 lives every year. The five year average operating cost of the hospital is estimated to be about $70,000 per year. In cold financial terms, it means that a life of a new born baby or his/her mom can be saved by investing barely $700. What a compelling case!
