During our last trip to SAGE HOSPITAL we organised a two day medical child examination (KinderUnterSuchung) for about 200 pupils of the school “Les Cajoutiers”. These children belong to the poorest population-layer in Senegal and all live in the villages surrounding SAGE Hospital.
For 80% of these children this visit to a doctor was a first time happening! They recieved a complete check- up and went through the following medical stations:
1. our pediatrist Dr. Labou
2. a dentist
3. an ophthalmologist
4. all children were given an “anti- parasite” treatment
5. all vaccinations were updated
6. necessary medication was given directlyat our Pharmacy at the SAGE Hospital
7. eventually reading glasses were distributed
This check might be beside their education at the school another small step into a – hopefully – better future.
This wounderful project was free of charge for the children and their families. It could only realised with the help and generous donation of all the friends and sponsors of SAGE Hospital e.V., who have always supported and trusted us in our actions. We would like to thank all of them who helped us make this happen.
