This week is World Orphan Week (WOW)
Swinfen Trust are linked to 5 Orphan hospitals who, between them, have sent 154 cases through our system over the years with 1,686 queries. On average each case was completed within 1.2 days.
Please make a donation today www.justgiving.com/swinfenct
and together we can make a difference to orphaned children around the world.
Today we set up a new Telemedical link to a hospital in Vanuatu. This is a community hospital operating with volunteers and hoping to secure a full time doctor very soon. All of the volunteers spend time working in the local hospitals to support themselves and build capacity into the local system. As a primary health care clinic they only keep patients in if they are critical. They have basic equipment and medication.
We look forward to working with them
As PNG are struggling with the food crisis we received news from our Gulf Hospital link who are sadly struggling with water. Their rain water tanks are really low and strictly rationed, which is quite the challenge when the wards are overflowing with kids with diarrhoea from drinking dirty river water, and malaria which has shot up recently. They are also having to cope with an outbreak of whooping cough.
These people are in desperate need of help. We would really appreciate your help by donating to us today so we can offer as much support as possible. Thank you
Swinfen Telemedicine set up a link today to support a community hospital in Albania that are helping Iranian refugees. They have 3 GP’s and 3 nurses on site, with no operating theatre or instruments and very little medication available. The services they provide are free of charge.
They had heard very good things of Swinfen Telemedicine and are very keen to be part of our humanitarian service.
