Cedar Tanzania is so excited to announce that Kamanga Health Centre (KHC) has received the brand new neonatal resuscitation table that was bought by funds raised by the crowd-funding campaign of December 2018. The arrival of this life saving equipment will mean safer and better treatment for all our new babies born at our health centre. At the moment we average a birth a day but numbers are increasing as KHC gets to be known in the region as a first class heath facility for mothers to deliver their babies safely.
KHC’s staff has received training in its use and is ready to give quality care to babies born at the centre.
The neonatal resuscitation table became a reality through Australia for Cedar Tanzania’s (ACT) first crowd-funding campaign. Cedar Tanzania and ACT were amazed by the fantastic support you all showed and they were able to raise funds not only for the neonatal resuscitation table but also for two portable cots as well. The cots have been ordered and are on their way to Kamanga, Tanzania. As you will appreciate, getting good quality medical equipment to Kamanga Health Centre can sometimes be difficult and can take a lot of effort and logistical planning. But Cedar Tanzania shall announce the arrival of the cots as soon as KHC gets them.
From all of us at Cedar Tanzania, ACT and the mothers of Nyamatongo Ward thank you for making the purchase of the neo-natal resuscitation table possible. You did it!
