Equipping St Matthieu’s operating theatre

May 11, 2017Dr Denise, Medical Aid International, Purchasing supplies, St Matthieu Hospital

The operating theatre at St Matthieu Health Centre is now beautifully equipped with all the kit purchased with the money you all so generously donated on top of the money we initially raised for building the operating theatre. Thanks so much to you all, and to the amazing team at UK-based Medaid, who not only sent out the kit to Bukavu – no mean feat – but also added many extras like external fixators (for broken bones) and quality operating instruments.

The theatre now has a really good operating table, suction, an operating light, oxygen concentrator and much more.
