The Children's Ward's only working sink.

A project run by the Leicester-Gondar Medical Link, backed by Health Action Leicester for Ethiopia (HALE) to improve children's health in Gondar.

  • Leicester Lead - Rebecca Brown
  • Gondar Lead - Dr Mehretie Kokeb

The children's ward in Gondar Hospital is in a severly dilapidated state. It is a 1950s built hospital ward with only 1 working tap for 40 plus children that is in dire need of refurbishment and staff training.

It is estimated that to complete the refurbishment of the ward it will cost £25,000.  This will include providing adequate beds sanitary and washing facitities as well as urgently needed  nurse paediatric training.

Fundraising for this project is taking place in the UHL using the Pennies for Heaven Scheme payroll giving scheme and if you are a UHL member of staff Click Here to find out more about the scheme and how you can help ensure this vital work continues.
