Please Give the Gift of Pediatric Care.

Help Us Raise $60,000 by March 31.

For more than 20 years, Konbit Sante has partnered with Justinien University Hospital to strengthen pediatric care.

During a typical month, Justinien University Hospital’s pediatricians and nurses care for 550 children in the outpatient unit and admit an average of 101 patients. Neonatal disorders, diarrheal diseases, and respiratory tract infections are the three leading causes of hospitalization. Today, with political instability, soaring inflation, and scarcity of food, the pediatric unit is seeing increasing numbers of malnourished patients.

Your donations will help reduce newborn mortality and improve care for all pediatric patients by…

  1. Supporting a full year of Dr. Muscadin’s teaching and mentoring of eight medical residents who are essential pediatric care providers in Justinien pediatrics.
  2. Supporting pediatric nurses whose primary purpose is to improve outcomes for the youngest patients.
  3. Supporting other on-site Konbit Sante staff, including an auxiliary nurse, pediatric feeders, a nurses’ aide, and an assistant facilities/stock manager.
  4. Supplying care providers with medical equipment and training.
  5. And providing emergency medicines and medical supplies so families can receive treatment regardless of their ability to pay.

“Our partners are accustomed to making do with what they have. Our goal is to help them provide the best possible care by bolstering the nursing staff, supporting resident training, and offering essential supplies and medicines. This takes resources, and your support is critical.”        

—Tezita Negussie, MSW, MPH, Konbit Sante Country Director

Please help us continue this important partnership by meeting or exceeding our goal of raising $60,000 by March 31. Your donation of $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000, or any amount will make a real difference. 
We have a match! The first $10,000 of donations made before March 31 will be matched, dollar for dollar.

We are deeply grateful. Thank you!
