Proposal Form

The main objective of this project is to purchase needed medical laboratory equipment for Madonna Hospital which serves a primarily rural population of approximately 1 million people. Madonna Hospital has recently achieved Tertiary Status which means that it offers three specialty services: Ophthalmology, Orthopedics and Surgery. The hospital staff hopes to add Maternal Child services in the near future.

With these specialty services, Madonna Hospital staff is treating more patients and the staff needs better diagnostic tools. The majority of the lab tests are currently being done manually which is very time consuming and labor intensive. Automated laboratory equipment will provide rapid and accurate test results to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

This project will purchase a 3 part differential hematology analyzer, a semi-automated chemistry analyzer, an electrolyte analyzer, a hematocrit centrifuge, a table top centrifuge with 12 buckets, a 6 month supply of reagents, a water filtration system, a surge protector, training of the staff and a 3 year maintenance contract.

This project will assist the staff of Madonna Hospital to provide better care for over 430 patients per month and over 5,100 patients per year. The cost of purchasing the laboratory equipment, installation, calibration, quality control, training of the staff, a three year maintenance contract and contingency fund for currency fluctuation is $59,714. The completion date of the project is 12/31/2021.

The Rotary Club of Umuahia will be the primary contact on the grant. They will partner with Rev. Fr. Dr. Christian Anokwuru (hospital administrator) to have the purchased equipment installed and calibrated, train the staff and plan a community celebration in Umuahia, Abia State, Nigeria.

The Rotary Club of Ft. Collins Breakfast will assist with fundraising and community outreach to US clubs. Cindy Cloyd hopes to make a visit to Nigeria in 2021 to Madonna Hospital to observe the hospital staff using the new laboratory equipment.

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%.
