Gifts for Health
Keep Refugee Families Alive and Healthy
A Pop-up Health Care Centre
With just reinforced plastic, waterproof tarpaulin and bamboo, an emergency pop-up health centre can be built in a refugee camp. A health centre can then treat injured and sick refugees in need of urgent medical support.
For refugees that have fled their homes, lack of basic medical attention is another one of the critical risks they face as they fight for their lives.
20 Anti-Malaria Mosquito Nets for Seven Families
20 mosquito nets cost HK$3,500 and can shelter up to seven refugee families, keeping them safe from the threat of malaria while they sleep.
Malaria is deadly and rife. For refugee families, a mosquito net can mean the difference between life and death.
An Incubator for Saving a Newborn Baby’s Life
For a pregnant woman fleeing her home, the scarcity of food and clean water puts her health and the health of her baby at great risk. Sending an incubator to a hospital in Syria costs HK$70,000 but is vital to saving newborn babies.
