With covid cases around the world rising, Zambia has not been exempt and the Mpongwe mission hospital has seen increasing cases of covid in recent weeks. Part of the treatment for patients with moderate to severe covid is oxygen therapy. Unfortunately, bottled oxygen is in really short supply in many countries, including Zambia. An alternative is a machine which can concentrate oxygen in the air for patients. We are conducting an urgent appeal to try and buy an oxygen concentrator for the mission hospital in Mpongwe. The cost is around £1,200 each. If you are able to contribute towards this appeal, please use the stewardship link here and use the reference OXYGEN: https://account.stewardship.org.uk/donation/oneoff/20101688
