Combating Coronavirus in our Children's Communities
Child Foundation is addressing an escalating situation in Iran. Reports from various provinces of Iran indicate that many hospitals are facing a shortage of medical equipment and facilities are under tremendous pressure with a huge number of lives at stake.
Child Foundation is collaborating with Razi Health Foundation, Razifoundation.org, of New York to address this urgent need. Based on reports from our on-the-ground Iranian sister organization and the assessment from Iranian-American medical and research communities, we need to provide test kits and essential ICU supplies for fragile patients in dire need.
And our shipment with Razi Health Foundation slated to ship out last week was delayed 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞! More and more medical items were donated and now the pallets are fuller than we first anticipated and ready to go to Iran.
Here's what you've helped us procure:
Portable Ventilator MT 75 Newport - 20
Philips Heart Starts Defibrillator AED - 10
Power NEB Ultra Compressure Nebulizer - 200
Pulse Oximeter Finger Probe - 200
Nellcor Pulse Oximetry System - 50
Extension Cable for Oximeter Probe - 50
Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer - 500
Stay tuned for a report about the arrival in Iran. We are all eager to see it!
The next shipment is already being planned.
Furtuer essential ICU equipment such as ventilators (artificial respiratory machine), high flow nasal oxygenation devices, respiratory circulator tube sets, electroshock device machines, and ECMO machines (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) are still urgently needed.
We ask for your contribution to this important effort that will undoubtedly save lives. Please join us now to address the most acute needs of the moment: ICU equipment and test kits. Together we can help Iran’s selfless medical community protect precious lives.
We are also supporting the hundreds of students we support in Afghanistan as their families face a severely underdeveloped healthcare system. We are grateful that the outbreak is less serious at this time in Afghanistan and are daily in contact with the office there about their needs.
