Summary

The donate 100 beds to the KATH hospital in KUMASI, is a project that seeks to solve in part, the inadequate bed situation in the afforementioned hospital,GHANA. Donors should care about this project because their donations will save lives that would have died as result of being turned away from the hospital because of inadequate beds. The story of a 70year old man who died in Accra as result of no bed at the LEKMA hospital last year, 2018, is what is motivating ALANDA to do this project.

Challenge

Hospitals in GHANA generally have inadequate facilities. One of the facilities that is lacking and hence affecting quality health delivery is bed inadequacy. Authorities at the KATH hospital say over 70% of beds at the health facility are out of use and need replacement. KATH is the only referral centre for healthcare delivery in the northern zone of Ghana. This situation of inadequate beds is badly affecting the smooth delivery of quality healthcare services to patients.

Solution

This project will save a lot of lives in the following ways: 1. It Will help improve quality healthcare delivery to patients. 2. People who sleep on the floor to receive treatment will become a thing of the past. By this way all the infections that come as a result of people sleeping on the floor will be remedied. 3. Part of the government's burden of having to find money to buy beds for the hospital will be lessened and dealt with.

Long-Term Impact

1. It Will improve quality healthcare delivery services to patients. 2. Lives will be saved. 3. Health workers will feel at ease to work.
