Raising funds and equipment to support local hospitals.
Adonai's Mercy House is raising the funds and equipment to help support the care of children through out the Philippines.
One of the greatest tragedies in most 3rd world countries is the lack of medical supplies and equipment.
Adonai's Mercy House knows first hand the despair Dr's and Nurses have with the lack of funds many government-run hospitals give to support medical the needs of their people, and the Philippines isn't any different. Because most Government hospitals in the Philippines are overwhelmed with patients, there is a desperate lack of rooms, beds, and medical equipment to treat or sustain patients for any length of time.
Most of the Children Adonais Mercy House will spend days, if not weeks waiting to receive a bed when they seek medical treatment, and when they do, they will have to share that bed with one or two other children. One of the hospitals we work with, for instance, has two working Children's Ventilators; this means if a child needs a Ventilator to continue treatment from home, it will not happen. So with a sustained daily admittance of around 500 children, these hospitals are duck taping solutions together.
The Pediatric Home Ventilator Program of Adonai's Mercy House is dedicated to supporting the care of children with diseases that require chronic mechanical ventilation. Our goal is to safely and seamlessly transition children from the Hospital to the home, improving the quality of life for both the child and their family.
We could use your support in making this happen; while we understand new ventilators are prohibitively expensive, we are confident that with your help, we can raise funds to purchase 20 used Ventilators to augment this Hospital so these children and families can effectively live at home while their child's disease runs its course.
These Ventilators will be given to the Philippines Children's Medical Center, where most of the children we support to receive help. The need is tremendous, and the Hospital can use all the help they can get for lack of desperately needed funds.
By helping these children thru Adonai's Mercy House, you are not just helping them, but you're also investing in the long-term future and success of the Philippines Children's Medical Center.
We are also in desperate need of Wheelchairs; many of the children we support cannot be mobile, many will spend much of their life in a bed or stuck in the home; wheelchairs will give these children the mobility to live life outside of four walls and enjoy the life they were meant to experience.
