Victoria Hospital Ultrasound





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: South Africa

Location: Cape Town

Total Budget: $61,600

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

This is for a dearly needed ultrasound in the Emergency Dept of Victoria Hospital(A government hospital). They currently have 4 that work full time at nearly 10 times an hour. 3 of them are about 10 years old. Normally these machines last 6 to 7 years. So 3 out of the 4 are on borrowed time. These Ultrasounds are vital in ER. They detect the probelms as fast as possible which is critical in ER. They eliminate having to send patients to another depart or for x-rays etc before diagnosis and thus speed up the response time for the medics treating the emergency cases that come in.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
