What’s the situation in Ethiopia?

Limited access to high-quality healthcare and maternity services has contributed to a high maternal and neonatal mortality rate. The country’s diverse geography and inadequate infrastructure can impede timely medical assistance, especially in remote rural areas.

Another healthcare challenge is the lack of access to basic healthcare, with a doctor-to-patient ratio of 1:50,000 and a nurse-to-patient ratio of 1:5,000, which is the lowest in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Malnutrition among newborns remains a serious problem, as many families struggle to provide adequate nutrition due to poverty and food insecurity. This has led to issues such as low birth weight and stunted growth. Additionally, inadequate sanitary conditions and sources of clean water in some regions pose a threat to the health of newborns.

Our aid in Ethiopia

As part of the project conducted at St. Luke’s Hospital, we focus on improving healthcare for newborns and children with malnutrition. Activities include staff training, purchasing medical equipment, and providing support for caregivers during hospitalization. Thanks to this, we have been able to support hundreds of newborns and children and ensure the smooth operation of intensive care units and therapeutic nutrition units.

These efforts have yielded tangible results, including the treatment of over 400 newborns and over 100 children with severe malnutrition. Additionally, our investments in medical equipment and medication stocks have enabled effective modernization of hospital wards. Our actions aim to improve the quality of healthcare in the region, thus enhancing the health status of those most in need.
