Through a GoFundMe campaign, our association was able to collect enough donations to purchase an ultrasound machine for pregnancy diagnostics for women in Mali.
In rural regions of Mali, health care is often inadequate – there is a lack of medical infrastructure and technology. Young, disadvantaged women are particularly hard hit by this during pregnancy. Their situation has been exacerbated by the Corona crisis and resulting unemployment: complications and high-risk pregnancies are the order of the day.
After an acute need was reported to us at the beginning of March 2021, Jama Nyeta was able to purchase a mobile ultrasound scanner at short notice. Funding was provided through a fundraising campaign on the GoFundMe platform. Just a few weeks later, the device was handed over to a local team of gynecologists in Mali – since then, countless women and their unborn children have been helped by targeted diagnostics and appropriate treatments.
