The following email came from a nurse at the Kratie Referral Hospital. In discussing who would benefit most from the funding we decided that the money should not go to the hospital directly as the chances are high that this money would then be disappearing. We chose to set up a fund primarily focused on patients themselves who often have very little financial means.
In April 2012 I will travel back to Kratie and see what more can be done. I will keep you informed.
