Oxygen and Suction Machines for Bairo Pite
Bairo Pite Clinic delivers over 1000 babies a year – but have never had the money for an oxygen concentrator (to resuscitate new-borns) or suction machines (to clear their airways and lungs after birth). Now though they will have them – thanks to the generosity of Spend it Well’s donors who have provided the USD8,000 needed to buy these. An Australian midwife is one of the donors who has helped make this happen. She spent time working at Bairo Pite as a student and saw how badly these machines were needed in order to save lives. The machines are awaiting shipment to Dili and should be in use by the end of August.
