Global Grant Project Proposal:

Health System Strengthening for Rural Hospitals in Nigeria: R.I. District 9142 for 2018-2019

Project Description:

This project will help provide needed medical equipment for 3 rural Missionary Hospitals in southeast Nigeria, specifically in Abia State. These hospitals serve mainly rural communities with a total population of approximately 1.4 million people. Two containers will be sent, filled with equipment donated by Project C.U.R.E. such as: operating room equipment, anesthesia machines, X-ray machines, ultrasound machines, lab chemistry analyzers and supplies.

The Missionary Hospitals often serve the most vulnerable patients who cannot afford services at private facilities found in larger cities. Additionally, the Missionary Hospitals may be the only facilities in a many mile radius with trained medical professionals. Many of the facilities in scope lack basic supplies and are in dire need of updated hospital beds, biomedical and diagnostic equipment such as ultrasounds, and lab equipment for rapid detection of infectious disease.

Melisa Esposti, of Project C.U.R.E. in Denver, conducted an on-site, comprehensive needs assessment for each facility. Working in tandem with the medical directors of each facility, the top priority needs were identified. This priority equipment will fill 2 containers.

On average, a 40' container of medical supplies and equipment costs $32.5k to ship and deliver to the hospital, yet contains $366k worth of medical supplies and equipment.

Cindy Cloyd is working with local Rotarians in R.I. District 9142 to make sure the donated medical equipment is installed and maintained.

Cost of Project:

Shipping of 2 containers, ground transportation and contingency fund is $71600.

This will provide approximately $732k worth of vitally needed equipment and supplies for the hospitals.

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%.
