The Ambrosoli Foundation supports the Kalongo hospital in Northern Uganda, founded in 1957 by Father Giuseppe Ambrosoli, a skilled surgeon and Comboni missionary, and the nearbly obstetrics school, founded in 1959 to combat the high maternal and neonatal mortality rates that affect the region and to ensure the professional growth of Ugandan women.
Kalongo hospital has been identified by the Ministry of Health as the Covid hospital of reference for the district and a taskforce of medical and nursing staff has been set up. Handwashing stations have been introduced to all areas of the hospital, a training program has been launched for healthcare personnel and activities to raise awareness have been organzied n the local community. New spaces have been set up, routes to the hospital have been improved, the triage system to manage suspected cases has been strengthened and a new isolation unit has been set up for infected cases.
The Foundation is looking for funds to support the hospital in the purchase of PPE, medical devices, medicines and respiratory support equipment, which the hospital urgently needs in order to prevent and contain the epidemic. The funds raised will be used for emergency purchases for the Covid prevention plan.
The hospital's priorities are to prevent the infection of health workers and transmission among patients, whilst being able to guarantee assistance to the most vulnerable patients who are suffering from pneumonia and breathing difficulties due to other diseases.
