What were the last 5 years in our hospital like? We have treated more than 140 thousand patients and we have helped to give birth to more than 3000 children. Our doctors have attended to more than 60 thousand patients infected with malaria, and helped thousands of patients overcome malnourishment. We perform Caesarians every three days, without which, both the mother and the child would not survive. On average, the hospital performs 90 thousand medical interventions each year. Every day, the waiting rooms are full of people seeking medical attention. Every day we help about 100 people. Without our help, most of these people would not survive.
