A4WH is currently building a hospital for mothers and babies in Charikot, NE Nepal, an area devastated by the earthquake in 2015. Apart from providing critical care for those in need, the hospital will become a major teaching centre for doctors, midwives and nurses. It will also be the base for an extensive community health program, providing essential public health measures and medical research in the area.
All funding for the construction of the hospital will come from personal donations.
As little as $2 will provide medications to prevent life threatening haemorrhages in pregnancy. $150 will pay for an operation to fix a woman suffering with genital prolapse. $50,000 will pay for a surgical ward.
