Through your donations we were able to purchase an autoclave for Bronze Healthcare Initiative. This is an essential piece of equipment for any hospital or clinic. It is used for sterilizing surgical equipment, laboratory instruments, pharmaceutical items, and other materials. Very similar to a pressure cooker, an autoclave uses steam to kill bacteria, spores and germs resistant to boiling water and powerful detergents to help reduce the chances of infection. Thank you to everyone who made this possible through private donations.
We are now gearing up to purchase a centrifuge, an instrument used to separate blood into three main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, and plasma. This instrument is a vital first step in being able to perform lab work. This piece of equipment cost $150 and will be used to speed up diagnoses from lab work, allowing the women and children of Busia to receive faster and more accurate care!
Working together, we are making Busia a safer place to live – one donation at a time!
