What is Hospital of Hope? https://vimeo.com/201631690 Main website: https://hohmango.org/
After years of planning and construction, the Hospital of Hope began seeing patients in March of 2015. The 30,000 square foot facility includes 65 inpatient beds and serves patients from Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria and other West African countries. The Hospital of Hope offers an outpatient clinic with 11 consultation rooms including OB, surgery and medicine. In addition the clinic is equipped with a dental room for use when dentists are available. The Hospital of Hope is equipped with digital x-ray imaging, ultrasound, a full pharmacy, full laboratory, a neo-natal intensive care unit, 3 isolation rooms, infectious wards, and 4 large operating rooms The Hospital of Hope team is comprised of more than 140 Togolese staff and over 40 Expats from the US, Canada, France and New Zealand who desire to show God’s love and care to those living in this dry corner of West Africa.
Within the first two years of opening, HoH performed 1350 surgeries and delivered 727 babies including 20 sets of twins and 2 sets of triplets. Also performed over 5000 x-rays and over 1500 ultrasounds, treated 20 children with chemotherapy and cared for 95 premature babies.
Direct Need relayed from staff:
"The hospital could really use a new laptop. We would like to track all our chronic illnesses, chemo patients, unpaid bills and VHFs. We have a person who can start keeping track, but we wanted to set up another computer station (laptop & printer) for them. That would be around $1000 to set up this needed job."
Advantage for Terracoin Community:
I believe this is a unique opportunity to align with Terracoin's vision, and start a partnership with a very unique organization in one of the poorest countries in the world. I think we could also add branding to the equipment, and have confirmed with staff that we can obtain photos for promotion if needed.
