Incubators for Gambia

Dear Medic Foundation,

Today Marie and I went to the hospital to see how things are going. We both returned home with a nice feeling. First of all the warming lamps. It is really nice to see them in operation. You get an impression when you look at the photos. They are really very happy and grateful. It is a fantastic donation!

And today Antony Prierra started working on putting the incubators together. We went to see him in the workshop and I made some pictures. This young man shows confidence in what he does, he seems to have the proper knowledge. I must say he gave me a good feeling.

Kind regards


Help for educational centre in Benin

Enclosed a message from Benin, in which a volunteer from the PUM reported on the organization of a medical, educational institution where Medic has provided the equipment and goods for: 

In June 2018 I went to Benin for 14 days. I was sent by the “PUM” The PUM is an organization for senior experts in many fields. Health Care is one of them. Benin is a terribly poor country. Everything is missing. Thanks to the collaboration with the Medic Foundation we have helped to establish an educational institution where midwives, nurses and laboratory staff are trained to set up a practice room. And we have taught them how to organise such classrooms and how good practical education should look like.

Request for a small combined operating / delivery room:

There is a need for space especially for interventions at birth (Caesarian section) and minor surgery. At the request of the Health Committee, the architect, Mr. Peter van Leerdam, designed a construction plan for a small combined operating / delivery room including sterile environments. It is an extension to the existing building.

The costs are estimated at approximately € 20 000, -. The center itself is not able to cater for this amount. Medic Foundation decided to provide this amount. Experience shows that the full amount will be used soleley for the construction and will be accounted for carefully.
