Hospital Needs

Current hospital needs include:

Volunteers to assist with teaching at the Kompiam International School
We take children from kindergarten through to Grade 8. Formal teaching qualifications would not be necessary as the school uses the ACE system which allows parents and helpers to function as monitors.

Volunteers to help with building and maintenance
Currently the hospital is on the cusp of a major renovation program. Anyone with building or handyman skills would be very, very welcome over the next 2-3 years.

Doctors
We are still critically short of doctors. We could use another 2 Christian doctors immediately.

Hospital equipment
We are needing a new anaesthetic monitor – ideally one that can do ECG, capnography, BP, gas analysis, and oximetry. ECG,BP and oximetry would be minimum.

Village Health Volunteer Program Coordinator
With Ruth heading to Australia we are looking for a senior nurse to head up this vital program (see the VHV page) over the next few years.

FUNDING

We are needing ongoing funding for building work, not just in Kompiam, but also in many of our health centres and aid posts, where facilities and housing are still extremely basic. In many cases, staff only have grass huts to live in.
