MedAid Edinburgh has been collaborating with The Gambia Volunteers in supporting their quest to help the Gambian hospitals with medical items.
Hospital equipment like general first aid kids, test tubes and resuscitation manikins have been donated to Bwiam General Hospital on the 5th of May 2019.
The hospital itself is located in the rural area of Gambia and is amongst those which are facing acute shortage of medical items.
“The medical items were very useful and the entire region was very grateful to have these items. The hospital serves the entire region, for example, the size of WEST YORKSHIRE “
Undeniably, the medical items were very well received, to the extent of being featured in the national television news report!
MedAID would like to take this chance to say thank you to all the hospitals who have kindly donated these items and to all the volunteers involved in the gathering, transporting and delivering of all these lifesaving equipment!
