FAIR FOR EVERYONE
"WHEN Work the World STUDENTS COME IT'S EASY TO IDENTIFY EQUIPMENT GAPS THAT WE HAVE. WHEN WE SEE THESE GAPS, WORK THE WORLD FILLS THEM FOR US."
- DR. MESHAK SHIMWELA - HOSPITAL DIRECTOR, TANZANIA
Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Ghana was in need of an oxygen concentrator. We sent them a brand new machine at the advice of local specialists, who estimated that with one they could save the lives of as many as 150 people per year. To our other partners we've donated laptops, medicine trolleys, dentistry curing lights, portable theatres, pulse oximeters, blood pressure monitors, thermometers, and more.
"WORK THE WORLD HAVE DONATED A LOT TO OUR WARD BECAUSE THEY'VE SEEN THE SITUATION OF OUR PATIENTS. WE'RE SO THANKFUL FOR ALL THE HELP THEY'VE EXTENDED TO THE WESTERN VISAYAS MEDICAL CENTRE."
- ROSE KAREN HIJOSA - SENIOR NURSE, THE PHILIPPINES
As well as equipment donations we also make sizeable financial contributions to all of our partner hospitals. In 2016 we sent over $370,000 to hospitals and clinics in all of our destinations.
Supervising staff take great care to effectively guide students for the duration of their placement. We make a point of recognising them by financially rewarding them, personally, for their efforts.
Our primary contribution to our partners is a fixed sum given to each and every hospital for every student we send. As Work the World continues to grow we're able to send more people to our hospital partners' in more destinations, meaning we can send increasingly more help to the places that will benefit most.
