In low and middle-income countries like Sudan, every year 4.2 million children suffering from severe pneumonia urgently need oxygen to survive. Improved access to oxygen has been proven effective in reducing death rates from childhood pneumonia by 35% and is also cheaper per life saved than other measures.
Sudan is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a young population and a median age of 19 years. The healthcare infrastructure is very weak, and lack of access to medical oxygen results in countless deaths among children and the elderly. But with your help in this blessed month of Ramadan, we can prevent these unnecessary deaths and give them a chance to breathe.
Sinja Hospital serves a population of 777,388 and has no oxygen plant, meaning there is no consistent reliable access to oxygen. Currently, medical oxygen is being transported from the capital 220 miles away. Your donation, urgently needed, will help to keep patients breathing.
At SAPA, we’re committed to helping Sudanese children and the elderly get the medical oxygen they need. Currently, we are building an oxygen station in Sinja Hospital in the southeastern part of Sudan where it will serve hundreds of thousands of patients with no sustainable access to oxygen. The station will help save countless lives. You can help us provide oxygen generators – the most economical and consistent source of oxygen in poor countries.
Join SAPA’s efforts to provide urgent medical oxygen to Sudan today. Let’s work together to make a real impact in Sudan and ensure that no one has to suffer due to a lack of medical oxygen.
