Letter from the TB dispensary: page 1, page 2

And again about tuberculosis! Rather, about the fight against it, a terrible diagnosis, about which it is not only scary, but sometimes embarrassing to speak out loud. Tuberculosis is still a disease that causes a mixture of horror and disgust among others. And this despite the fact that the "silent" tuberculosis bacteria, according to WHO, infect one-third of the world's population. The number of operations in the Zaporizhzhia Regional Tuberculosis Clinic carried out in 2018 is 170. For nine months of 2019, it is already 163. Not only human resources are involved in the fight against the disease, but also those remnants of technical progress that remained in the TB clinic as an inheritance

This handsome apparatus standing so majestically in the center of the operating room is actually an old mechanical ventilation apparatus. The service life of rescuers like it does not depend on age but on utilization. It was installed in 2004. The expected service life is five years. After least ten years, it surely should be retired because instead of twelve thousand hours it worked at least thirty-five thousand. But it is alone in the operating room of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Tuberculosis Dispensary. It was repaired 5 times because there is no possibility to replace it yet. It could УdieФ forever at a most inopportune moment. ItТs not at all difficult to guess that failure will lead to human tragedies. There is another in the department of anesthesiology and intensive care, which was repaired three times in three years of slaving away.

Reality is a gloomy. In spite of the seeming hopelessness, there is a way out! It is necessary to raise funds for a brand new device as soon as possible. Well, at least one! If by the rules, then the hospital should have one device in the operating room and six in the department of anesthesia and intensive care.

Because this is such a serious issue, Charity Fund Happy Child is raising funds for a brand new medical ventilator costing about $18,000 USD (450,000 UAH). This is a considerable amount, so weТre counting on great support from people who understand the critical importance of this equipment. This is the only way we can prevent tragedies!
