Your help has made this happen! Thankyou
If you have kindly donated to The Mackay Clinic’s chosen charity – the Duncan Hospital Charitable Trust – then you know that 100% of your money goes to The Duncan Hospital in Bihar in India. So, we are delighted to share some fantastic news with you this morning, as we know many of our patients, friends, and staff we work with gave generously to the DHCT’s first coronavirus fundraiser, earlier this year.
We are thrilled to share these images from The Duncan of new oxygen ventilators which some of the funds raised helped buy. These machines are crucial in the care of patients who require artificial help to keep breathing while they fight this virus. The older ventilators in the hospital have already spent over 30,000 hours breathing life into such patients, these new ones will help save many more.
The new ventilators were first blessed during a short ceremony, as is the custom at the hospital. They were then immediately put to work, as our main picture shows, helping critically ill patients to breathe.
So, thankyou to all of you who donated, your support is vital, and you are helping the amazing staff at The Duncan to save lives right now.
