Kumi Hospital Compassionate fund is treating the poor and saving lives every week!
Kumi Hospital serves about 1 million people within a 50km radius. Only about 30% of the population have any disposable income to pay for even the cheapest care provided at Kumi. Rather, they will seek treatment from traditional healers. It is estimated that at least four people die every month at Kumi Hospital because they cannot afford a treatment. One member of staff commented that “A child should not die just because they break their arm.”
The compassionate fund was set up to enable the hospital to treat the poor – allocating an average of £12.50 per patient. This small amount is enough to provide emergency treatment and save lives.
TDT is passionate about making this project sustainable through developing a network of people in the UK who will give to this regularly, becoming Kumi Compassionate Partners.
