Recently we have installed a new X-ray machine in the Sher hospital. Dutch Flower Foundation has donated  this device, worth more than $ 50,000.

We are of course very grateful for this. In the Sher hospital in Ziway (Ethiopia), which functions as a regional hospital, more than 100,000 patients are treated annually for a various reasons.

Doctor Demis (chief physician): “Unfortunately, there are many traffic accidents in Ethiopia and therefore the hospital deals with a lot of bone fractures. With the new X-ray machine, 15 to 20 people can be provided with a rapid diagnosis daily and an adequate treatment can be prescribed. After 8 months of waiting, we can now take these x-rays again in our own hospital. We are very pleased with that “.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dutch Flower Foundation on behalf of all employees of the Sher hospital for this generous donation.
