A little bit of context

Due to the fires in Athens, the AHMCI is raising for urgently needed medical equipment for burns patients. Greek hospital's budgets are constrained and hospitals require charitable assistance to service patients. AHMCI successfully purchased an Ultrasound machine for the Halkidiki General Hospital, situated in Polygyros, Northern Greece. AHMCI are currently raising for the Burns Unit at Thriasio General Hospital in Elefsina near Athens due to the recent Mati fires. The charity is raising for other hospitals in Greece as determined by the medical advisory section of our board.

But there’s a problem

Doctors are experiencing difficulty in procuring medical equipment that is required for life saving surgery. A large shipment of burns related medical and surgical equipment was sent from Australia to assist with the surgeries. Hospital's lack funding and the medical staff are managing on bare necessities. Infrastructure and medical equipment is outdated and in short supply causing significant health risks to patients and unnecessary death.

Here’s what we’re doing about it

The Surgeons have compiled a checklist of required surgical and skin graft equipment. The charity is aiming at purchasing medical equipment for the Burns Unit at Thriasio General Hospital in Elefsina to provide necessary surgery for burns victims:

Surgical Skin graft Dermatome Handpiece Machine and accessories
Used for range of skin graft surgical specialties.

Dermatome Blades Sterile and additional burns surgical equipment
Surgical blades and scalpels necessary to perform emergency operations.
