Thanks to Kitchen Table Charities Trust, Bramuel was able to go out yesterday and purchase 3 pieces of medical laboratory equipment for Arrow Web Hospital; a hematology analyzer, a bacteriological incubator, and a Biochemistry Colorimeter. He is working on getting it all set up now.
He has contacted NHIF and requested that they send an official out to the hospital for their next accreditation inspection. This will take place on 3/19/09.
Hi everyone-just wanted to give you two quick updates:
1. The visit with the Japanese Embassy went well. One of the Embassy officers plans to come to the hospital next week for a site visit and will advise more at that point.
2. Bramuel notified me today that the money from Kitchen Table Charities Trust has safely arrived in the hospital bank account, so now they will be able to move forward with purchase and installation of the new equipment.
All the best-
It has been one amazing and busy week for Arrow Web Hospital!
I am SO excited to report that we heard back from Kitchen Table Charities Trust this evening in response to the proposal we submitted several weeks ago. They have ACCEPTED our proposal and have agreed to provides the funds requested to purchase the lab equipment!!
This equipment will allow the hospital to request inspection of the improvements to the facility for the next higher level of NHIF accreditation. The best part about this is that it will also allow them to begin accepting referrals from other facilities.
I received the following message today in response to my inquiry about receipt of our proposal:
"I am pleased to confirm safe receipt of your proposal - which will be included in the next batch of applications to be considered by the Grants Committee in mid to late February."
Still no word from Africa Diaspora on receipt of that one.
Bramuel and I have been working over the last several weeks on developing a proposal for submission to Kitchen Table Charities Trust (http://www.kitchentablecharities.org/). The attached proposal was submitted this evening.
