We still have a need for many items, some of which are listed below, and running costs. Some equipment such as a generator came with our building, but may soon need to be replaced, and given their critical nature for our work, we should acquire one sooner than later. For the future, we will likely need an ambulance, for transporting patients from our referral sources to us, who might need surgery, or to the tertiary center when needed.

Any contribution no matter how small is welcome, and you may specify if you want your gift applied to a particular item.
