Support for Kawthaung hospital

News from Burma is not encouraging:

  • Kawthaung hospital works with only 2 doctors, at the moment only the emergency room is operational.
  • For 7 months, surgery, basic care, and preventive actions have been suspended for millions of people. Without vaccines and with contagious variants, COVID is corroding the hopes of Burmese people. In Kawthaung, patients with severe respiratory problems are treated by nurses who administer oxygen. Oxygen cylinders, like medicines, are paid for by patients.
  • To comply with the total lockdown imposed by the government, our activities are also suspended.


But when you know you can help, you can't really sit still. This is why our doctors have held many meetings to understand how to support the citizens of Kawthaung. At the moment we have already donated to the Kawthaung hospital:

  • 10 CYLINDERS OF OXYGEN for patients of the covid exhibit
  • 3 OXYGEN CONCENTRATORS
  • 500 QUICK TESTS for covid
  • 500 N95 MASKS and 500 VISORS for healthcare personnel

This is just a small step of solidarity from MedAcross staff. We are planning to do much, much more to help people in need of healthcare in Myanmar.

Keep giving your support to be able to help the most fragile people in Myanmar, spread our message!
