Health & Medical Project Donations!

On September 13, 2017, the donations for Hospital Victor Guardia  in Huaraz, Peru were delivered. During our summer sessions, volunteers were able to shadow doctors and nurses in areas such as pediatrics, surgery, physical therapy and emergency. Volunteers are asked to observe the need for materials in the hospital because part of the project fee includes a donation to their worksite. Also, volunteers are encouraged to speak with hospital staff about necessary materials and equipment. We were able to donate medical supplies such as stethoscopes, blood pressure tensiometers, suturing kits, trauma shears, mosquito clamps, kelly pincers, hospital bed sheets, electric stove and a manual resuscitator, which were distributed to different departments in the hospital. The donations also included elastic bands, foam roller and dumbbell set for the physical therapy department.
