X-RAY MACHINE FOR ST. THERESE OF THE CHILD JESUS – PETER J. KING HOSPITAL

Moutourwa, CAMEROON

Project Description

St. Therese of the Child Jesus – Peter J King Hospital was constructed in July 2014 to serve the underprivileged population of Moutourwa. Unfortunately, due to lack of security in the country at the time of construction, the newly established hospital was not able to purchase medical equipment. Today the situation in the country has greatly improved and the Sisters are now ready to equip the hospital. One of the first devices that must be purchased is an X-ray machine, which is urgently needed in order the hospital surgeon form accurate diagnoses. Currently, patients must travel to Maroua for X-ray examinations which is 55 Km distant. This trip proves to be difficult or even impossible for many patients due to their state of health and lack of financial resources. An X-Ray machine is needed on site at the hospital in order to sufficiently care for both hospitalized patients and outpatients who require this service, especially those who have had accidents or bone fractures.
