Since 2017, Same has been partnering with the hospital and securing funds needed to replace lifesaving equipment, resources, and assisting the medical staff to continue offering the best quality medical treatment to their patients.
The Khayelitsha District serves one of the biggest and poorest informal settlements in the country. The hospital is a 300-bed government district hospital. With the surrounding communities densely populated, the hospital sees a high flow of patients through its doors daily.
This has caused problems like insufficient medical equipment, and wards running at over-capacity.
The hospital’s health-care services cover HIV, TB, mental health, maternity, neo-natal care, paediatrics and trauma.
