Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: Bangladesh

Location: Dhaka

Total Budget: $53,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Dhaka Shishu Hospital (http://dhakashishuhospital.org.bd/)is one of the very few children hospitals in the country as well as the largest children hospital in Bangladesh having 650 beds. People who are in low income bracket, comes here from across the country to ensure better treatment in minimum cost.

Although, it is a Government supported tertiary level public hospital, government provides fund only for staffs (doctor, nurse & administrative stuffs) salary. Apart from this, hospital is bearing all expenditure by its small scale of income and donations from doctors and nurses. Only 65% beds are being charged from patients and 35% percent of Hospital beds are nonpaying bed (It includes bed charge, medicine, and food for both baby and mother).

As it is in the center of the city, number of walk-in patient is very high and admission need exceeds the hospital's capacity.

Neonatology Department is one of the important department of Dhaka Shishu Hospital which was established in July 1978. This was the first ever neonatal unit in Bangladesh. Initially the unit capacity was 20 beds. Presently the capacity of the neonate unit extended up to 40 beds(32 beds in SCANU and 08 beds in NICU), of which 23 beds are nonpaying (21 beds in SCANU and 02 beds in NICU). Around 2,000 newborn patient will be directly benefited, out of which 700 newborn patient will benefited without paying any cost.

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%.
