We have already put some of the money raised from the Okap Cheri fundraising campaign to good use at Justininen University Hospital, one of our healthcare partners in Cap-Haitien, Haiti. Biotechnicians at the hospital recently repaired a steam autoclave using about $450 worth of parts purchased by Konbit Sante. The autoclave, pictured here, is used in healthcare settings for the sterilization of heat and moisture-stable items such as surgical instruments, implanted medical devices, and surgical drapes and linens. It is an essential tool to reduce the risk of infection, and we are happy that we were able to provide the parts needed to make the one at JUH operational again.
