FULL STORY GDS received requests from Doctors in Gorkha hospital for several pieces of emergency breathing equipment earlier this year. We are so pleased to be able to confirm that two small units which provide a constant flow of oxygen to patients, as well as two suction machines and two nebulisers, have been purchased through funds raised by supporters in the UK.
Volunteer Richard was present to see the delivery of the equipment to the hospital and Naomi has since visited and seen the machines in use by patients. The Doctors of course so grateful for the immense help this provides for patient care.
