• Remodeling of the Delivery Room: €10,000

Context:
Pakistan is home to more than 1.4 million Afghans who have been forced to flee their country in recent years. Non-governmental organizations have focused on providing the refugee population with access to decent health care and education services, and bolstering social cohesion between refugees and their host communities.
Phulra Hospital is the only health care center serving the displaced population. It also serves the local population (Mansehra has 250,000 inhabitants). Around 700 women give birth each year at this center, despite the lack of a delivery room. They also treat COVID patients, although they cannot keep the vaccines in good condition due to power outages.

Beneficiaries: 2,000 Afghan families in the Mansehra district and the local population.
