In countries affected by poverty, drought, environmental disasters, conflict or fast-spreading disease outbreaks, healthcare is often in short supply but so desperately needed. Below find out how as a healthcare charity, we help to provide much-needed healthcare in countries around the world.
Save The Children has been championing the right of children for over 100 years. We believe every child has the right to survival, protection, development and participation. We provide emergency response in a crisis and programs that help to protect children and give them the best opportunity in life. Here is what makes us one of the best healthcare charities.
What We Do As A Medical Supply Charity
One of the most important factors for charities that help with medical equipment is being able to supply equipment and healthcare services when and where it is needed most. We have Emergency Health Units that are strategically positioned in key areas of the world with teams ready to provide immediate medical aid.
Within 24 hours of an emergency situation occurring our teams (consisting of doctors, nurses, midwives, team leaders, logisticians and water and sanitation experts) can be deployed, ready with all the gear they need.
Within 72 hours, we can be set up with surgeons, doctors and nurses already saving lives.
Additional Emergency Response Support
Our frontline emergency healthcare and medical assistance includes:
- Mobile clinics & field hospitals that administer life-saving medical care and drugs
- Treating malnourished children with high-energy nutrition supplements
In addition to rapid response medical aid, we have also built health centres that provide urgent healthcare. We train health workers and can also provide ongoing services that help to protect children, support them in rebuilding their lives and help to reunite them with family if they have been separated.
Help Support Medical Aid Charities
One of the best ways you can support charities that help with medical equipment is to make a donation. As a medical supply charity, donations enable us to continue to provide emergency and ongoing healthcare. You can make a single donation today or become a monthly giver. 79% of donations goes directly towards program expenditure.
